Maurice Yip is a Graduate Assistant in Legal Geography and a PhD Candidate at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.

He works with Professor Jean Ruegg and his research team «IF - Informing Futures» in the Institute of Geography and Sustainability.

His research stands on the shoulders of giants who developed legal geography, theorised territoriality, and studied the Global East.

His current thesis work on the rise of coworking spaces in East Asian cities aims at understanding how and why the rhetoric of sharing is rearranging the property relations in the city, so that he can help others understand the implication of the sharing urbanism for territorial planning and urban futures.
