Maurice K-C. Yip

Maurice Yip is a doctoral fellow and a graduate assistant in legal geography at the University of Lausanne.

Working with the urban planning research team led by Professor Jean Ruegg, as part of the urban studies research group in the Institute of Geography and Sustainability, he is interested in understanding the dynamics between law and spatiality. His past research is empirically rooted in the East Asian context. He is currently developing a research agenda that synthesises the fields of legal geography, science and technology studies, and urban planning.

Before moving to Switzerland, Maurice was a research postgraduate at Hong Kong Baptist University where he completed a Master of Philosophy degree and a First-Class Honour Bachelor of Social Sciences degree. He worked as a journalist and is an award-winning commentator for newspapers in Hong Kong.
