Dr Bin JIANG is Associate Professor in Landscape Architecture at the University of Hong Kong. He has a PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is an advocate of the ‘Healthy City & Healthy Landscape’ campaign in East Asia. Trained as a landscape researcher and architect with a background in design, humanity, and environment psychology, Dr Jiang’s research interests include the impacts of built environments on human health and wellbeing, environmental justice and security, landscape empowerment of deprived communities, and contemporary landscape architecture.
Dr Jiang is a Co-Chair of Research and Methods Track in Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA) in USA. He is the founding director of Virtual Reality Lab of Urban Environments and Human Health in HKU. He is a fellow of the China Society for Urban Studies and a consultant expert for many governmental and professional organisations. Dr Jiang is serving for international and national-level journals as an editorial board member or international editor, including Landscape Research, Frontiers in Psychology (Environment Psychology), Landscape and Ecological Engineering, Landscape Architecture Frontiers, and Landscape Architecture (China).
Dr. Jiang also works as a landscape planner and designer. As a practitioner, he has worked closely with two important contemporary landscape architects: Kongjian Yu and Peter Walker. He had a 15 years’ continuous practice experience since 2005.
