Qianqian Qin

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 Lecturer in Planning 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.
