Daniel Andres de Riva
Andres is passionate about policy and urban development, having worked on design projects in European and Latin American cities, on real estate investments in Spain, and on economic policy in Massachusetts. He previously taught at the Syracuse University School of Architecture and worked at the international real estate consultancy firm Knight Frank. Currently, Andres works at the Massachusetts Port Authority - Massport, where he focuses on developing seafood processing facilities and a project cargo terminal that will help grow the region’s maritime economy. He is also part of a select taskforce that will set Massport’s future efforts in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Andres enjoys working across professional silos, including design, policy, and finance to propose cross-sector strategies that address complex urban challenges.
While at Harvard and as an alumnus, Andres has annually exhibited at the European Conference a family collection of 25 original prints from 1950 that were designed to promote European cooperation and the Marshall Plan. In addition, Andres took part in the launching of the Belfer Center’s new Transatlantic Relations Initiative (HKS), where he presented a short film interviewing European and American students at HKS on their views on NATO and the rise of populism.
Andres holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University, a MSc in Real Estate Development from Columbia University, and a MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School.
