TEACHING/SUPERVISING EXPERIENCE
School of Urban Planning and Management, Harbin Institute of Technology Shenzhen Graduate School
Since 2009, I have run three courses to the students from urban planning, architecture design and landscape design, which are Landscape Architecture and Environmental Psychology, Building Environmental Simulation and Research Method, and Subject Design on Urban and Architecture
Since 2009, I have supervised ten Master Students, three of them have graduated in 2012, and one of them has obtained distinct student awards of Hei Long Jiang Province. The students’ dissertations focus on studying urban environmental problems and green architecture design methods.
