Current research:

I am a researcher interested in how processes of rapid urbanisation have reshaped the social order of Chinese cities. My research explores how urbanization processes including housing commodification, the emergence of urban informality and urban redevelopment have affected the social integration and community life of migrant residents in Chinese cities. In addition, I am also keen to understand how planning and housing policies can affect the intergroup relations between native urban residents and migrants.
