Degree(s): Master of Architecture; Ph.D. Candidate of Architecture

Home Country: People's Republic of China

Favorite food: Rice cake (糍粑), Braised fish (红烧鱼)

Favorite book and why: One of my favorite books is Fortress Besieged (围城), by Qian Zhongshu (钱钟书).  I like Qian’s way of using satire and humor to depict the art of dealing with people in a Chinese society.

DEI Contribution/Highlight: In collaboration with Taubman faculty and students, I’m interested in exploring and presenting alternative understandings of architecture and cities. Our work on the project Architecture Collaboration in Chinese Theory provides a space for international students to read non-English-language texts and seeks to expand sources for curriculum at Taubman College.

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? We could be privileged and disprivileged at the same time in different circumstances. Building a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion matters to each of us.
