Research Interest

Urban mega projects are strategic tools for cities to pursue urban growth and enhance urban competitiveness. However, implementation of such projects is highly complex due to often involved multiple actors with different interest and expectations. I am interested in the governance of urban mega projects in East Asian cities and how global-local interplay and rescaling influences the visions, strategies and spatial-social-economic impacts, and how urban mega projects play their role in the development of an innovative, sustainable, resilient and circular urban environment.  

Expertise

I am assistant professor Urban Development Management at Delft University of Technology since 2008. I have developed her expertise and special interest in understanding the complexity of urban mega projects in the context of industrial transition and globalization in European – China context.  My research create insight of the complex urban development process, development strategies, governance in changing global-local context and sustainable urban environment regarding mega project study. I am involved in academic research, education and valorisation projects that links the management of urban mega projects to governance, planning, development strategies, economic transition, energy transition and circular economy. Before I took this position, IShe had been a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment during 2001-2007 and completed my doctoral dissertation  Shanghai Pudong: urban development in an era of global-local interaction (IOS Press, 2007).
