Urban regeneration; Network of relationships between actors in the urban development processes

Profile

I completed my bachelor degree in Urban Regeneration and Planning in University of Liverpool and master degree in Urban Regeneration in University College London. This educational background brings me strong concern on the problematic and complicated dynamics between multiple interests in the urban development, especially redevelopment, processes.

My doctoral research looks at the networks of relationships between key actors – and how that interact with the existing institutions – in a snapshot of the overall picture of the continuous urban transition in the UK and China.
