Senior Research Fellow in Urban Geography, University of Leeds

My research grows out of a strong focus on specific geographic settings, primarily in East Asia. Tokyo has provided the context for much of my research, but I have also worked in Taipei and am currently involved in research projects in Nanjing, Shanghai and Anhui Province. My work can be grouped into five areas of interest: urban restructuring and gentrification in Chinese cities, contemporary East Asian cities in comparative perspective, representations of the city, urban change in South East Europe, and traditional retail markets. I have an additional special interest in Belgrade and its modernist district, New Belgrade.
