Victorian State Representative

I am a recent Monash PhD graduate with a special interest in urban industrial planning, economic development, and the cultural economy. My research investigates the development of rent-sensitive industries in high-cost cities with a particular focus on cultural industries and urban manufacturing. Through my research, I aim to inform urban and cultural policy programs that promote inclusive and equitable cities.

Zheng Chin

Victorian State Representative

From a young age I remember being frustrated, upset, and angry at the injustice that existed within society. I didn’t understand why, but all I remember was that things seemed incredibly unfair. I knew I wanted to do something, to make a difference, but I didn't know how. This desire to make things better is what drives me to do what I do, and is how I situate myself within the world. At this stage of my life I find myself undertaking a PhD which seeks to understand how social movements and grassroots activism can act as a catalyst for social change. Ultimately I seek to use this research to find democratic ways to transform society by mobilising people to collectively challenge inequitable and unjust social and cultural norms.
