I have diverse experience in academia, industry, and government in the UK and China. I am currently working as a Research Fellow on the ERC-funded ‘ChinaUrban’ Project. Prior to joining UCL, I worked as a Research Associate on a NERC-Newton funded research project in the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences at the University of Glasgow (2020-2022). I completed my Ph.D. in Urban Studies at the University of Glasgow in 2020, funded by College of Social Science Scholarship. I gained my Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Human Geography and Bachelor’s degrees in Economics at Peking University. Outside academia, I worked as a planning consultant (2014-2016) in Beijing China, where I participated in over ten government planning projects for different tiers of Chinese governments.

Research Summary
I am an early career human geographer with proven expertise and interests in the fields of urban and regional governance, spatial planning, land use and urban form, and environmental governance. I study urban and regional development from a multidisciplinary perspective, combining insights from geography, urban studies, planning, and environmental science. I have published several papers in English and Chinese leading journals around these topics.
Teaching Summary
I taught 'Research Skills' and 'Environmental Geography' at the University of Glasgow between 2020-2021. I was also invited to give two guest lectures at Heriot-Watt University in 2021 and 2022.
