I am a Lecturer in the MSc Conservation Programme at the Division of Landscape Architecture at the University of Hong Kong. My PhD research at the University of Glasgow analysed heritage conservation and environmental sustainability policies within the context of the UN 2030 Agenda and the Scottish sustainable urban development policy. My research interests include the role of heritage conservation in achieving the UN 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and its contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), beyond SDG 11.4. She is the co-author of the ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites) Heritage and the Sustainable Development Goals: Policy Guidance for Heritage and Development Actors. As a member of the ICOMOS SDG Working Group, my projects include the ICOMOS SDGWG Webinar Series on heritage and the sustainable development goals, collaboration with the NGO Major Group for the UN High-Level Political Forum, and the preparation of the ICOMOS Policy Guidance Manual.
