Research interests

My research and design practice is related to urban design and planning in a global context, cross-culture exchange, with a specific focus of public space in the Chinese and Western context. My doctoral research project entitled Chinese Notions of Public Space: The Transculturation of a Notion in Sino Urban Design Cultureinvestigates how the notion of public space is transculturated in urban design culture of modern China and aims for a transcultural understanding of public space in the contemporary Chinese city.
