Dr. HUANG Huang


HUANG Huang is currently a postdoctoral researcher working at Center for Cultural Studies on Science and Technology in China, Technical University Berlin. She had studied Landscape Architecture for five years in college, and then she continued her graduate school major in Urban Planning for three years, both in Tongji University, Shanghai, China. When she was in Tongji University, she attended the joint study programs with Busan University, South Korea in 2006 and Cardiff University, the UK in 2009. After three years of career in design and planning research institutes, Huang decided to pursue her doctoral degree in urban planning with the research mainly focusing on post-rural urbanization in China at Technical University Berlin. 

HUANG Huang’s research focuses on rural urbanization, rural revitalization, urban-rural interaction, urban renewal, and urban sociology. Supported by ‘Stipendium des Präsidenten,’she had been devoting herself in the study of rural development within the current urbanization processes in China, analyzing exploratory rural practices in China with a critical perspective through in-depth case studies. It is follow-up research of her previous study on rural challenges in China, which started in 2008 and addressed the subject of intensive development in rural China as supported by national funding.
