Cristián is a transportation planner focused on public transport and non-motorized modes. He worked in the office of the Chilean Undersecretary of Transportation for five years, where he established the Sustainable Transport Unit. As the principal of this unit, he developed a national program to encourage walking and bicycle use among children commuting to school. He studied civil engineering with an ongoing specialization in Transport Planning at Universidad de Chile. At MIT, he will explore how transportation systems and urban planning influence each other, and how this interaction could contribute to the sustainable development of the city.
