Dr. LI Xinze is an Architecture lecturer at the School of Architecture, Tianjin University. Her main research field is traditional ancient fort-type settlements, planning of ancient settlements, in relation to administrative organizations; socialization; culture; political factors; economy; etc. Carrying out interdisciplinary research is an important path in taking the analysis into depth. Through her research，she hopes to find some useful traditional organizations to manage recently developed communities. In addition，the traditional fort-type settlements face the danger of being destroyed. She is willing to find ways to protect them，therefore systematic further research is an urgent necessity.
