Camilo Benitez

I am a postdoc of the group of Ethics and Philosophy, researching the tension between identity, cohesion, and change in the design of social resilience indicators and monitoring practices. I blend statistical and system modeling insights for measuring social resilience with a critical appraisal of their underlying normative context. This allows me to situate patterns of social resilience behaviors and urban policy frames within the long-term path of city governance and conflicts.

My scientific endeavor stands from a post-disciplinary perspective. My background includes Political Science by training, an MSc in System Dynamics, and a doctoral title in Public-Private Partnerships Governance (Construction Management and Engineering - Twente University). Additionally, I have applied research experience in Water Adaptation at Deltares and the Global Center on Adaptation. Since June 2022, I lead the Academy education pillar of the 4TU Center for Resilience Engineering.

I was a Postdoctoral researcher in the 4TU.DeSIRE programme.
