CCNB is a melting pot of ten designers from ten countries. I exhibited one bamboo installation and two bamboo woven artworks. CCNB (Creative Community Ningbo) is an active community for local and expat artists who currently reside in Ningbo. The exhibition was on for two weeks and CCNB hosted an opening party on 24 May 2019. Thank you all for coming!
This Christmas I made some laser cut baubles, putting my rusty AutoCAD skill to use at last 🙂 Made around 650 of them in total for the Christmas market and personalised orders. 22 meticulous design and A-Z. Anyway, here is hoping for a Merry Christmas and have a fantastic 2019! Cheers.
I would like to share the good news that I recently passed my PhD viva voce examination and I will attend graduation in November 2018. Here is a link to my Prezi, of an interactive abstract. The aim of this short Prezi Â is to give a snapshot of the PhD (see embedded video below).
List of publications as part of the PhD journey is as follow, one paper is under submission.

Hiya, here is an update about the short interview Gillian and I had with Ningbo TV. Ningbo Drawing Circle is part of Brew Drawing project. An article for the series of “I am in Zhejiang” covering foreigners live in Zhejiang province, is available though the Wechat article can be found here. And a link to the 3 minutes video in QQ is as follow. Thank you for the volunteers (Agathe, Sarah, Sedat, Mike and Magda), Clotilde and Wery and also the NBTV crew.
THE EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DESIGN COMPUTING AND COGNITION (DCC’18 or DCC18)
Bringing artificial intelligence, cognitive science and computational theories to design research. July 2018.Â Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
A little bit something about myself and our life in Ningbo, China.Â Ningbo is a home of 7 million people, 2 hours away on high speed train from Shanghai, and only an hour away from Hangzhou. Just a hop skip away.Â Ningbo is good compromise between urban life and nature, and the campus is our home. Matt and I came nearlyÂ 5 years ago to the University of Nottingham ( in its China campus. The university has 3 campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia).Â After 8 months I decided to pursue a PhD degree, and that is me for the time being :)Â Ningbo Foreign Ladies Group (NFLG) provides a great support system, thank you Ayleen from NFLG for givingÂ me the opportunity. And also Ningbo Focus.
It is that time of the year again, Life Cycle time. The 4 days endurance ride covering up to 540km in Zhejiang province. We will be riding next week, from October 3rd to 6th. A much bigger riding team (18 cyclists) and a logistics team. Stay tuned for updates.
In the meanwhile, here is a glimpse of the endurance ride last year (LC6).
