Course Instructor

Dr. Filipa Pajević is a sessional lecturer in the Master of Urban Innovation Program and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Management and Innovation (IMI) at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

Filipa’s research interests revolve around changes in ways of working and their spatiality. More specifically, she is interested in the impact of digitization, mobility and flexibility on how and where we work. Her doctoral research explored the experiences of—and plans for—knowledge workers in Kitchener-Cambridge-Waterloo, Ontario, to reveal a circular relationship between new ways of working and rising real estate costs. Her postdoctoral research will explore how planning and policy efforts at the city level are changing in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will focus specifically on downtown recovery plans in Toronto and beyond.  

Filipa holds a Ph.D. in Urban Planning, Policy and Design from the School of Urban Planning, McGill University, Canada and a Master of Science in Urban Management and Development from Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Economics from Franklin University Switzerland. In addition to publishing in academic journals, she has written for The Guardian and co-authored op-eds for CityLab (Bloomberg) and CityMetric (The New Statesman).
