Getting to know who we are!
Hi everyone, I am Hong Ching GOH, I am a faculty member at the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Faculty of Built Environment, Universiti Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, a city where I currently live.
My research areas include natural resource governance, tourism planning especially in natural areas, sustainable cities and communities, and the cross-cutting themes centered on development and conservation which are interdisciplinary in nature https://umexpert.um.edu.my/gohhc.html.
What I love about my work is that I am able to interact with the communities to create real impacts yet at the same time, contributing to the scientific communities and bridging the gap between the high level decision makers with the needs at the local level.
When I am not working (this is quite difficult to define), as one of my hobbies is writing scientific papers. mmm may be I would put as I love practicing reiki, walking as Zen practice, reading spiritual books and also copying Buddhism sutra pieces. Gardening and feeding the furies are also my routine for leisure.
