About me

I worked in property companies in China for several years before pursuing Master in Development Economics from the Department of Economics and PhD in urban studies from the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, Sheffield University. I joined UWE after working at the National University of Singapore for five years.

Area of expertise

My research interest mainly focuses on the momentum, processes and impacts of urban transformation and the relationships within growth, people and the built environment in the East Asian context. Specifically I look into the fields of real estate economics and growth strategies, rapid urbanization and social transformation, housing affordability and social inequality, urban governance and land use management, urban regeneration and class gentrification, citizen participation and community dynamics, and so on.
