About me

About me

I am in the writing-up stage of my PhD (Geography Curriculum Making in Shanghai: Teacher Agency in times of change). Before returning to higher education, I taught geography in Chinese schools and international schools (specialised in IGCSE and A level Geography).

I got my first degree is BSc Geographical Sciences in Nanjing Normal University. My second degree was MA Curriculum and Pedagogy (Geography) in East China Normal University (in Shanghai).

From 2022 till now, I take up two roles in the Faculty: PGR cohort chair (organising online cohort meetings monthly every Thursday afternoon 2-5pm); PGR representative in the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee.

I also lead a Connected for Resilience project ( a Vice-Chancellor Funding project, funded in 2022) to enhance student experience in Stirling. The weekly and monthly events are announced and posted at Instagram @ConnectedforResilience

From February 2023, I started an initiative to map inspirational women, which is updated (almost daily) at Twitter Mapping Inspirational Women (@GeoEdu4) and weekly at a blog:
