Yiming Wang directs the MSc Public Policy (MPP) Programme at the University of Bristol. He is currently a senior lecturer in cities and public policy based at the University of Bristol's School for Policy Studies and Centre for Urban and Public Policy Research. He grew up in Shanghai and studied in China, Canada and USA. Prior to joining Bristol, he lectured at University College London’s Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment and Cardiff University’s School of City and Regional Planning. 

Yiming's academic interest is mainly in economic and social policies relating to the urban built environment, including land use, housing, transport infrastructure and commercial property development. His research work involves the application of both quantitative and qualitative methods, featuring an international comparative perspective and the use of geographic information systems (GIS) to analyse empirical data for public policy research. 

Yiming welcomes enquiries from prospective research students, especially those who are interested in urban economic development and comparative public policy analysis.
