The Office of International Affairs has organized a series of Yuan Shan Globalize Online Lectures! On November 24, 2021, we invited Professor Adam Dennett from University College London (UCL) to give us an online lecture on " Unpacking the Nuances of Neighbourhood Change & Gentrification - an Urban Analytics Approach. " Professor Dennett is the Head of Department at the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) and Professor of Urban Analysis at UCL. He is an outstanding scholar with extensive experiences in academic publications on leading journals in the field of urban studies. 

In this lecture, Professor Dennett introduced the origins of urban gentrification and Neighbourhood change and shared his professional experience in urban analysis by using open science, reproducible methods, and applied urban science to have a real-world impact through collaborative endeavours with urban governments. The Director of the International Program on Urban Governance (IPUG) at NTPU, Dr. Shun-Te Yuo, led nearly 10 international students to the classroom to join the online lecture physically. During the Q&A section, Professor Dennett kindly responded to many questions raised by the students and teachers. The event lasted for one and a half hours, more than 70 faculty and students have participated in the online lecture.
