Akkelies van Nes is working at the department of Civil Engineering at the University College Bergen and at the section Spatial Planning & Strategy, Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft. She holds particularly deep knowledge on ‘space syntax’, a tool which she has used to investigate a broad variety of issues in both, a local and regional context. Her expertise is evidenced by her positions as a chairwoman of the 5th International Space Syntax Symposium held in Delft 2005 and of the upcoming 13th international Syntax Symposium in Bergen. It is also reflected in her key publications listed below. A broader insight into Akkelies’s research portfolio can be accessed via her researchgate site.
