Biography

Mandy Lau is Assistant Professor in the Department of Urban Planning and Design. She obtained her PhD from the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge, U.K., where she also received her MPhil in Planning, Growth and Regeneration. She received a BSc in Sociology from the London School of Economics.

Mandy’s research interests include integrated spatial planning, public housing, urban regeneration, and sociological perspectives on urban change. Her doctoral research focused on how integration across different policy sectors and levels of government was achieved, during the planning and implementation of housing growth in the Cambridge sub region.

Mandy’s latest research projects include an RGC-funded project entitled “Legitimate or illegitimate NIMBYs? Understanding opposition to public housing through an interpretive approach”, which involves applying sociological theories to analyse why opposition to public housing is regarded as legitimate in some cases, while being labeled as illegitimate NIMBYism in other cases.
