Nicolas Douay

Nicolas Douay is associate professor of urban planning at the Université Paris‑7 Diderot and a researcher within the Géographie-cités laboratory (CRIA team). After obtaining his PhD, jointly supervised by the Université de Montréal and Aix–Marseille Université, he embarked upon a postdoctoral internship at the French Centre for Research on Contemporary China (CEFC Hong Kong) with the support of a Lavoisier postdoctoral grant in 2008 and 2009, and returned to the CEFC in 2015 as part of a CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) delegation. His research compares urban-planning approaches in Asia (China & Hong Kong), Europe (France) and North America (Canada), and focuses on the process of metropolisation, particularly with regard to urban policies, territorial planning processes and the uses of digital technology.
