The UPD Cluster is excited to welcome Dr. Julie Ren as an LSE Fellow in Human Geography who will join us this September. Dr. Ren joins UPD after having spent a year as post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Public Policy at City University of Hong Kong. She previously completed her PhD in Humboldt University Berlin. Learn more about Dr. Ren here.

Dr. Ren shared the following comments about the Fellowship:

‘The LSE Fellow will be predominantly centered on teaching, which will be a big change for me. I’m coming from years of being almost exclusively focused on research, and look forward to connecting this to the course syllabi. I’m shamelessly enthusiastic about my research interests, and am excited to be joining the UPD cluster where research is so central to the teaching.’
