Background

My PhD research investigates the urban revolution in Chinese cities and the meaning and impacts upon ordinary citizens. Specifically, it looks into the transformation of Shanghai's waterfront through hosting the World Expo 2010 and the impacts upon the residents who were uprooted to clear the land for the Expo. I am now working on the intersection of finance and real estate development, based in the University of Leuven, Belgium.
