About Mingyu Zhu

Coming from an architect background, I have a wide range of research fingerprints covering the field of Built Environment, Urban Design & Planning, Data Science, System engineering and Human-Computer Interaction.


My interest into geospatial systems is largely related with the design, construction, and management of the urban built environment. The digitisation of infrastructure and built assets is my main research field. I particularly enjoy any cross-disciplinary efforts across the domains of engineering, social science and art & design.
