Fei Li is an assistant professor in the Urban Studies Institute. Her areas of research include urban policy and planning topics (housing affordability), and communication technologies in cities, and the interaction between virtual and physical spaces. Her recent work has focused on three major themes: 1) the effects of mandatory inclusionary zoning (IZ), or affordable housing requirements for private housing developments, on housing production and the geography of affordable housing; 2) the implications of off-street parking standards, including minimum requirements and maximum caps, on parking supply, housing production and housing prices; 3) the assessment of social segregation in daily urban life beyond residential space.
During her doctoral studies, Fei worked as a teaching colleague at NYU Wagner, teaching Microeconomics Discussion (graduate level). Prior to that, Fei obtained her master’s degree in geography at Hong Kong Baptist University, where she served as a teaching assistant for a number of undergrad courses, including Advanced Quantitative Methods, Transportation Geography, Globalization, and Urbanization in China.
