I hold a master’s degree in Urbanisation and Development from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and a PG certificate in Social Science Research Training from Newcastle University.
I now work as a visiting teacher and researcher in the school of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, Newcastle University.
My research interest is in urban politics in contemporary Chinese cities, especially in relation to urban place-marketing and branding.
