Graduate Assistant

Professional Summary

I’m a doctoral student of the Regional Development Planning program with a concentration in Cultural Landscape. My research investigates the role of the cultural-led revitalization approach in local community development, especially cultural tourism opportunities for the residents and economy.  I’m currently working on the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks Destination Plan to identify strategies for cultural tourism experience, heritage conservation, and regional economic development of Ohio’s World Heritage destination to satisfy UNESCO requirements for dossier completion.  As a graduate assistant, I have contributed to projects in several communities in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky related to the cultural landscape and sustainable development issues. Before that, I worked as an urban planner in China, where I worked on more than 20 projects related to local economic development and physical planning.
