International Development Research @ Cambridge



Han Cheng is a Cambridge Trust International PhD Scholar in Human Geography at the Department of Geography/Trinity Hall. He also collaborates with Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and with Cambridge Centre for Rising Powers.

Han’s doctoral research examines the geo/cultural politics of China's emerging development knowledge production, with a particular focus on its relations with African countries.

His research and his previous experience in investigative journalism and civil societies on environment and development policy can positively impact the lives of the world’s poorest 3 billion people.

Han’s interest in international development motivates him to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals through the participation in Cambridge Global Challenges
