Dr. Zhuang’s research accomplishments include multiple interdisciplinary projects funded by major Canadian research council grants examining the intersection of immigrant settlement, urban landscapes, and municipal policies. Her research has generated key peer-reviewed publications on topics such as building welcoming infrastructure to attract and retain migrants in non-traditional gateway cities, the influence of immigrant entrepreneurship on city building, ethnic place-making in ‘third places’, migration and suburban transformation, and the role of municipal planning in immigrant settlement and integration. Her comprehensive investigations into immigrant settlement, urban policies, and the transformational effects of immigrants on urban spaces play a pivotal role in numerous ongoing comparative studies across North America, Europe, and Oceania, as well as between the Global North and the Global South.
