Jiayu Pan has been accepted into the highly competitive Turing Enrichment Scheme as a placement student for 2022/23 at the Alan Turing Institute.

The Turing Enrichment scheme ( offers students currently enrolled on a doctoral programme at a UK university the opportunity to join and work at the Alan Turing Institute for up to twelve months where they can continue their PhD while enriching their research and making new collaborations.

Jiayu is a member of Sustainable Design Group (, led by Dr Ronita Bardhan( Jiayu’s research looks at the study of the design for future workspace by investigating the occupancy pattern and developing the simulation and predictions for the hybrid working setting. Currently, Jiayu is working with an industry partner to collect a range of empirical data at a hybrid office in London for analysis and modelling.

During her placement on the Enrichment Scheme, Jiayu plans to leverage her knowledge and expertise in the application of probabilistic modelling in real-world data-driven design practice at the Turing Institute. She will also take advantage of multiple training resources at the Institute to enhance her knowledge and skills in artificial intelligence and data engineering.

Jiayu is broadly interested in the use of data-driven sustainable design for built environment to tackle global inequality and climate change. In the past, she has completed urban planning and design training at the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London, and conducted research on urban spatial analysis for green spaces in her MPhil in Architecture and Urban Studies at University of Cambridge.
