I finished my PhD in Human Geography and Urban Studies in the Department of Geography and Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science (October 2017), where I had been working since October 2012. I hold a BA in Urban Management (2009) and an MSc in Urban and Regional Economics (2011), both from Peking University in Beijing, China. My research interests include (but are not limited to) space and power, urban political economy, and methods in doing Human Geography (with the focus on urban ethnography). I did my fieldwork in Beijing in 2014, followed by a supplement field trip in the summer of 2015. After an intense writing-up stage, I passed my viva voce with no corrections on 15 September 2017.
