Suzanna Massingue  

Associate Researcher

I am a Senior Consultant in WSP’s Future Mobility team, with a keen interest in human-centered design as a means of ensuring equitable access to mobility. I hold a BSc in Geography with Business Management at Queen Mary, University of London, and an MSc in Transport and City Planning at University College London. My master’s dissertation explored issues of transport (in)equality in Maputo. This research became the basis of my recently published paper, Walkability and the Right to the city: A snapshot critique of pedestrian space in Maputo, Mozambique, which I co-authored with Daniel Oviedo.
