Debayan Chatterjee is a Commonwealth Scholar and a CSC Mentor from India, who has finished his MSc in Urban Development Planning at UCL with a distinction in 2020. He previously gained an MSc from the School of Planning and Architecture in Delhi with a High First Class degree along with a Bachelor degree from Jadavpur University (Kolkata) with a First Class Distinction. Currently, he is working as an urban designer with the AE7-Dubai team.
Besides AUDA, he also taught urban design at the Jamia Millia Islamia University and SPA-Delhi. His current research explores the effects of ‘Time-Space planning’ on Indian cities and argues that urban practitioners should start acknowledging temporality as their new reality. In 2020, he was invited to Buckingham Palace to discuss his latest research findings on ‘Time-Space planning’ with the Duchess of Sussex.
Being an artist, he is also interested in curating varied urban-issue-based thematic illustrations that conceive cities as a backdrop for human activities and demystify people and their diverse cultures, and activities. His last artwork, ‘The Market at Limoges’ was exhibited at the Bloomsbury Festival in London.
