Research summary

Tse-Hui’s research interests are in urban design. She is currently working on two research projects, both centred on the urban spaces of London. One investigates how the implementation of a dry sanitation system might impact on the existing urban form of London. The other looks at what places in London are conducive to the wellbeing of the people living and working in this urban area. She has used an actor-network theory co-evolution framework to investigate how London’s urban form could be transformed to provide sustainable water-cycle infrastructures. She will continue to develop this framework to apply to other cultures and places, as well as to other infrastructures that support human life.
