Miao Yin (°1994, China) is a PhD student at the SEG research group of the Geography Department. She holds a Master’s degree in Human Geography. Her research focuses on the cultural aspects of world city network-formation. Tracing the production, diffusion and consumption of cultural products (e.g. films, music, art) she quantifies cultural linkages between cities and analyses the network's configuration. This will be used to further explore cities' strategies to be global cultural hubs.
