Research Interests

Taking Hong Kong as a case study, my project seeks to understand the different processes through which everyday political illiberalism and political uncertainty is (re-)produced, expressed, felt, and endured across everyday geographies. The project is primarily interested in the everyday spatiality of political illiberalism and political uncertainty, the creative and non-contentious ways ordinary people used to ‘live with’ radical political transformations, and the ways these mundane acts of endurance, coping and adjustment are spatially afforded across everyday spaces in the city.

I am also working a small research project about recent Hong Kong family migrants (parents who recently migrate with under-18 children via the BNO scheme) in London – tentatively titled: Recent Hong Kong Family Migrants to London: A Study into Migrant Families Educational, Career, and Household Strategies. The main research objective is to understand the different ways (short-notice) family migration decisions and post-arrival settlement strategies are made and materialized by Hong Kong middle-class families
