Dr Ying Long 龙瀛



Ying Long, Ph.D. is now working in the School of Architecture, Tsinghua University, China. His research focuses urban science, including applied urban modeling, urban big data analytics & visualization, quantitative urban studies, planning support systems, data augmented design and future cities. He has an education background in both environmental engineering and city planning. Before joining Tsinghua University, he has worked for Beijing Institute of City Planning as a senior planner for eleven years. Familiar with planning practices in China and versed in international literature, Dr. Long’s academic studies creatively integrate international methods and experiences with local planning practices. He has published almost two hundred papers and led over twenty research/planning projects. His funded projects range from international organizations like World Bank, World Health Organization, World Resource Institute and NRDC, and Wellcome Trust, internet companies like Alibaba, Baidu, Jingdong, Tencent, Didi, Mobike and Gudong, local governments like Beijing, Chengdu, Qingdao, Hefei, Zunyi, Rongcheng and Laizhou, to central governments like NDRC and MOHURD, and the NSFC. Dr. Long is also the founder of Beijing City Lab (BCL www.beijingcitylab.com), an open research network for quantitative urban studies.

My books in Springer: Geospatial Analysis to Support Urban Planning in Beijing and Shrinking Cities in China

My Textbook in 中国建筑工业出版社 《城市大数据理论与应用》


To sum up, I like to understand the whole China city system (rather one single city) at a fine scale (human-scale) through emerging new data, quantitative methodology, applied urban modeling as well as cutting edge techniques like deep learning and wearable sensors. In addition to understand, we also like to do spatial intervention like urban planning and design based on these quantitative urban studies. Our projects range from multi-level models for urban spatial development of Beijing, urban expansion model for the whole China at the block level, bus landscapes using public transportation smartcard records, quality and its variation identification using large-scale street view pictures as well as a cluster of shrinking city related works. 


For details of our finished projects, please go to https://www.beijingcitylab.com/projects-1/. Sure, our ongoing and under review projects are not open yet. We may talk about them in person.

How to visit me: 


My office is at Room 501, New Architecture Building, School of Architecture, Tsinghua University, Beijing. NOTE: I am in the dark GREY building, rather than the white one although you may need enter through it (RED PIN in the map)

Please kindly note that an accepted face-to-face meet is generally for half an hour only, which is my longtime tradition and I think is enough for an effective discussion for a topic.
