Personal profile

Research interests

My research area is centered on urban studies. My interest is primarily in films and literature related to cities, especially novels set in specific cities and films adapted from novels. 

I study cities at different historical stages from the perspectives of urban films and novels which closely delineate urban space and daily life. I anaylse relationship between urban films and novels of the same period to identify commonality and complementarity, and their value to urban studies.

I am currently reviewing two modern cities, London and Beijing. examining urban public space in urban novel and film, and establishing the key role of city obsevers as a bridge between the planned and lived city. Identifying the relationship between public spaces and people.
