Welcome

I am a human geographer working at the intersection of urban, economic, and cultural geographies. My research focuses on urban politics and governance, urban knowledge and policy mobilities, postcolonial urban theory, and state-society relations of China. My current and previous work has looked into urban political economy of arts and creativity as well as land commodification in Chinese cities.

I hold a PhD from the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University (2016) and a MPhil from the Department of Geography at The University of Hong Kong (2012). I am currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Urban Planning in the Department of Planning and Environmental Management at the School of Environment, Education and Development, The University of Manchester, where I contribute to teaching across the undergraduate and masters programmes.
