Professional Summary

Being born and raised in Beijing exposed me to a dense urban living environment and a fast pace of change in city life. The way my city had grew and developed certainly fascinated me, and lured into wondering how it was done, which eventually led me into an architecture program.

However, while approaching the end of my undergraduate study, I realized I need to pursuit a professional career in a field with broader socio-economic considerations, rather than design and construction, to answer my questions. Fortunately, a visiting student program gave me the chance to join school of planning in UC and then stayed for the MCP.

Now here I am, working on my dissertation with prof. vom Hofe, prof. Wang and prof. Auffrey, which focuses on economic resilience in China's Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. I hope to contribute in finding a applicable method to measure and promote economic resilience, mitigate impact from economic fluctuations, maintain people's living standards, and avoid unnecessary loss.
