Fabio Hernández Palacio is an associate professor in urban design and planning at the Department of Security, Economics, and Planning at the University of Stavanger. He is an architect who graduated from the National University of Colombia and the TU Delft in The Netherlands. He completed his PhD at the Department of Architecture and Planning at Norwegian University of Science and Technology with a thesis entitled "Urban Densification and the Sustainable City in Norway: A Study of Drivers and Barriers".  He has several years of experience as a consultant for urban planning and urban design and as a university lecturer in urban design.
His research interests revolve around how the built environment can influence sustainability, looking at different aspects such as urban quality, urban form, urban density and densification. In his research, he has studied various aspects of the sustainable city, such as densification as a planning strategy, the relationship between density and environmentally friendly transport, the relationship between urban quality and sustainability, and the transition towards more sustainable cities. He is enthusiastic about technology to improve efficiency and quality in the built environment. He believes that many traditional and well-known approaches can also contribute to cities' "smart" solutions.
