Short Biography:

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urban Planning and Design and the director of the Urban Analytics and Interventions Research Lab at the University of Hong Kong. My research interest lies in causal inference in urban interventions’ social and health effects, using natural experiments. My ongoing research revolves around three main themes: urban redevelopment and social and health impacts of older people; new metro, active travel and wider health effects; street and public space interventions linked with long-term changes. The three research themes cover different types of urban interventions (e.g., complex interventions, and short-term actions). If you are interested in knowing more about my research, please visit the Urban Analytics and Interventions Research Lab (https://www.ulab.hku.hk).
