I joined the Liverpool School of Architecture in April 2010. I was trained as an architect and urban designer in the University of Bath (2004-5) and Southeast University, China (1999-04). My PhD was on Chinese urbanism from the University of Strathclyde (2005-9). I was previously appointed as a researcher working on the AHRC funded project 'Sensory Urbanism' in Strathclyde. I am the co-founder and convenor of the 'Urban Morphology and Representation Research Network' under IAPS.
