Junjia Ye was a postdoctoral research fellow in urban geography with the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic as part of the GLOBALDIVERCITIES project. She is also a visiting research fellow at the Asia Research Institute at NUS. She received her PhD in geography at The University of British Columbia in 2011. Her research interests lie at the intersections of cultural diversity, critical cosmopolitanism, class, gender studies and the political-economic development of urban Southeast Asia. Alongside extensive ethnographic research methods, she also uses techniques of film and photography to further create visual narratives through her work. She is currently finishing her first book, entitled Inequality in the Global City: The Division of Labour and the Politics of Cosmopolitanism in Singapore.
