About

aaortega_profile

I am an interdisciplinary geographer and critical demographer, with interests on urbanization, migration, GIS, counter-mapping, spatial statistics, and socio spatial theory. My recent projects have interrogated how neoliberal urbanism in the Philippines has facilitated a new round of property accumulation, the rise of new middle class subjectivities and the displacement of the poor. My current projects examine the rise of transnational suburbs and precarious suburbanisms in the Philippines and the role of alternative transnational economies in peri-urban developments.
