Ying Jin


Ying Jin lectures on city planning, urban design, and urban modelling at University of Cambridge.

He is particularly interested in understanding how technology, policy and human behaviour affect the development of cities and their infrastructure, and in using this knowledge to create new design solutions.

His main research interests are computer models of cities, and urban history.  He has extensive industry experience and directed multi-disciplinary teams in building and using computer models as experimental platforms to appraise policy scenarios that involve investment, regulation, pricing and promotional campaigns.

Professor Jin is a Commissioner of the UK’s Independent Transport Commission and a member of the independent technical review panel at UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and Department for Transport Joint Air Quality Unit.


At DARe, Ying develops a new generation of simulation models that are capable of tackling the transport and land use policy realities post Pandemic
