Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) as APARC Predoctoral Fellow for the 2020-2021 academic year and is currently a doctoral candidate in anthropology at Stanford University. He is broadly interested in urban studies and contemporary social movements with an area focus of Hong Kong and Mainland China. His dissertation examines how Hong Kong government’s developmental schemes are confronted by grassroots actions aimed at democratizing urban planning and promoting alternative urban futures. An ethnographic account of Hong Kong’s political culture in the post-Handover era, it also seeks to reflect on urbanism of our times.
