IamLliw is back! For those that don’t know, check out About Ideas by IamLliw.
It has been a long time. In the last couple years, I attended and graduated with a M.A. from Arizona State University. I focused on urban environment studies through an urban political ecology framework. My passion for space and the use of space led to me examine relationships between social issues and their spatial distribution. Along those lines, I immersed myself in urban planning and development, as I pursued my interest in urban environments that developed during my time in the Department of Environmental Protection of Taipei. The major projects I have been involved in typically revolved around the spatial analysis of cities. That is also where my passion lies – understanding, analyzing, and creating space.
Unfortunately, this blog fell to the wayside with my focus dedicated to my studies. However, my experiences in academics taught me the importance of developing and sustaining a voice. At its core, every published research paper is an intellectually developed and evidence based report from the viewpoint of the researcher, similar to a blog post. It has become important to me to bring those experiences and continue to mature my verbal and written communications. Since May of this year, I have been looking for a job in the fields of market research, urban planner, data analysis, and biological research.
I am relaunching this website to continue the development and establishment of my voice and online presence. I will be covering a broad range of topics, beyond the social and urban issues that has been my focus for the last couple years. In addition, my projects and works are featured and they will be updated as I embark on new adventures.
It’s good to be back. Let’s restart our conversation.
