Biography

Wen-Ching Ting is a Research Fellow under the research project entitled ‘Capitalising Human Mobility for Poverty Alleviation and Inclusive Development in Myanmar’ (CHIME), at the Department of Geography, the School of Global Studies. This project is jointly implemented by a consortium of agencies consisting of the International Organisation of Migration (IOM), the Metta Development Foundation and the University of Sussex. The research is funded by the Livelihoods and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT).

She obtained a doctoral degree in Migration Studies from the University of Sussex in 2016. Her doctoral research was supported by the Government Scholarship for Study Abroad (GSSA), Taiwan and the Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange. She also completed a master degree in Development Studies at the University of Manchester. Her research interest focuses on migration, displacement, homemaking, livelihoods, aid and development. Her regional focus is mainly on Southeast Asia countries, due to her previous work experiences with NGOs for educational and income-generational projects in Thailand, Cambodia and north India. Moreover, she also has seven years of experience working for cultural and educational projects in a variety of indigenous communities in Taiwan and New Zealand and some experience in project evaluation in Malawi.
