Dr. Wang Xize is an assistant professor at the Department of Real Estate. He works interdisciplinarily in the fields of urban planning, policy analysis, public health and transport policy. His overarching research goals are (1) to investigate the impacts of spatial planning on people's health and well-being, as well as (2) to understand how urban policy makers could best respond to the challenges of demographic changes (especially aging) and global warming.

Prior to NUS, Dr. Wang has been a postdoctoral scholar at University of California, Berkeley in 2017-2019. He received a Ph.D. in Urban Planning and Development at University of Southern California in 2017, a Master in Urban and Regional Planning at University of Minnesota in 2012, and a B.E. in Urban Planning and a B.A. in Economics at Peking University in 2010.
