Yi Gong is a lecturer in Interdisciplinary Quantitative Thinking in Arts and Sciences at UCL. Yi is a human geographer with research expertise in spatial analytic and health geography. Yi integrates knowledge across disciplines and explores ways to understand the interactions between human, health and the built environment; how these interactions are affected by socioeconomic factors and the development process in the Global South and North. Yi’s work focuses on two themes (1) sustainable development and healthy cities, (2) Community resilience and vulnerability to hazards and climate change-related disasters.
Before joining UCL Arts and Sciences, Yi worked as a research fellow at the Sustainable Places Research Institute at Cardiff University and a post-doc researcher at the University of Manchester. Yi obtained a PhD from UCL, and an MA in Human Geography from the University of Liverpool, after completing her undergraduate degree in Information Engineering at Wuhan University, China.
Haoying Han is a professor based at the Zhejiang University (ZJU)’s College of Civil Engineering and Architecture (in urban and rural planning) and adjunct professor in the ZJU College of Public Affairs (in land resource management and urban management). He is also the director of ZJU Institute of Urban and Rural Planning Theories and Technologies. His research is focused on theories of urban complexity and planning decision making. He is author of many academic papers published in peer-reviewed international journals, such as Role of urban planning characteristics in forming pandemic resilient cities – Case study of Covid-19 impacts on European cities within England, Germany and Italy, and author of several influential books, including Urban Complexity and Planning: Theories and Computer Simulations (Lai and Han, 2016).
Eric Heikkila is a Professor at the USC Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California (USC). His research work is both quantitative and qualitative in nature, and his scholarly writings address a wide range of topics on urban development and public policy. His books include The Economics of Planning (CUPR Press, 2000) and China from a U.S. Policy Perspective (forthcoming). He has applied economic & spatial analysis, fuzzy sets, agent based modeling and a variety of statistical techniques to study urban structure. Other aspects of his work include a more qualitative, policy oriented approach to urban development issues, especially in the context of the Asia Pacific region. He has spent sabbatical leaves as a visiting scholar on separate occasions at National Taiwan University (Department of Geography), Peking University (Department of Urban and Environmental Sciences), and Chinese University of Hong Kong (Department of Geography and Resource Management).
Dr. Heikkila’s links to professional practice help ground his academic research agenda in more pragmatic concerns. Shortly after joining USC, he became founding Executive Secretary of the Pacific Rim Council on Urban Development (PRCUD), a globally based non-governmental organization that organizes regular forums in host cities throughout the Asia Pacific region. He has undertaken consulting work for the World Bank, USAID, UNDP and other organizations. As Director of International Initiatives at the USC Price School of Public Policy, Dr. Heikkila has broad responsibility for planning and coordinating the School’s global engagement, including strategic institutional partnerships with counterpart institutions abroad.
Yiming Wang is currently Associate Professor in Urban Economics and Infrastructure Policy and Programme Lead of MSc Infrastructure Investment and Finance based at the UCL Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction. He conducts research, teaching and consulting on public finance issues related to the urban built environment, with a particular focus on how to fund transport infrastructure via land value capture. Having lived in China, Canada, USA and UK, his academic work features an international comparative perspective and has been commissioned by sponsors such as the USC US-China Institute, British Academy, and Worldwide Universities Network. He also has experience in providing expert advice for political advocacy organisations within the UK, including the All Party Parliamentary Group on Land Value Capture.
