Kosta Diochnos

Knowledge Translation Specialist

Kosta Diochnos has a Master of Science in Planning from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Carleton University. He also has two eyes, enough fingers, one neck, a digestive tract, and other physical features sufficient to fool the casual observer into believing that he is indeed human. He claims to have been born in the foothills of Calgary, but through a series of trials and tribulations has found himself suspiciously present in what is known as “Toronto.”  

Kosta is a big fan of cities, on account of the number of places you can buy meat and vegetables wrapped up in different forms of bread. At the School of Cities, he works on a variety of different projects focused on sharing interesting knowledge and research with the public. He is interested in fostering all the ways that cities can be unique, complex, equitable, weird, fun, and innovative places to be.
