Timea Nochta

Project Researcher

University of Cambridge

Timea is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC), Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge. She holds a PhD in Local Government Studies from the University of Birmingham (UK), and an MSc in Architecture and Engineering from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (Hungary). Her research focuses on the dynamics of multi-actor (multilevel and networked) decision-making processes in public policy and implementation, in particular urban and infrastructure planning and management.

Timea’s current work investigates the complex interplay between digital technologies and urban governance in ‘smarter’ cities, within the frames of the “Digital Cities for Change” Programme funded by The Ove Arup Foundation. Previously she has contributed to developing a City-scale Digital Twin prototype of the Cambridge city region as Early Career Researcher at the Cambridge Centre for Digital Built Britain.

Before joining CSIC, she conducted research into the ways in which modelling tools can support whole-systems energy decision-making in the multilevel governance context of the UK. This work built on Timea’s doctoral research in which she developed a novel theoretical framework and methodology (combining network and discourse analyses) to investigate the role of governance networks and stakeholder management in facilitating low-carbon energy transitions in European cities.
