Jieling teaches Environmental Design at the Birmingham School of Architecture. She completed her B.Arch in Architecture at Wuhan University of Technology in Chine and holds an MArch degree in Urban Design from University College London. Jieling’s Ph.D in Urban Studies and Planning University explored smellscapes in intermodal transit spaces in the UK and China from a cross-cultural perspective.

As an environmental specialist, Jieling believes that designers need to consider more than just how the hardware of architecture functions for its users. Her research interests lie in theories and creative practises of place-making and environmental design that interprets and plays with people’s sensory experiences, particularly in relation to soundscape and smellscape. Alongside teaching, Jieling is also one of the Research Degree Coordinators for Art, Design and Media faculty at BCU.
