I am a PhD student in Economic Geography at London School of Economics, and a researcher in the project of Urbanisation in Developing Countries. Currently I have two strands of ongoing research. One looks at how different institutions affect the spatial structure in African cities and the implications of this for public service provision in urban areas based on satellite images. The other explores how innovations in transportation and e-commerce impact levels of air pollution and traffic congestion in Chinese cities.
