Personal profile


I am a postgraduate researcher in Architecture at the University of Manchester. My research focuses on infrastructures of care, challenging infrastructural design to confront the systemic discriminatory structures of racial, gender, and class profiling through care ethics. Before her doctoral study at the University of Manchester, Xin studied at the University of Michigan (Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning) and participated in research/design projects related to disability studies in architecture, mental health infrastructure, and narrative representations and technologies. Xin obtained a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Michigan (2023) and a master’s degree in Building Construction from Auburn University (2016).
