PhD, Geography, University of Buffalo

Gordon Tan is a Faculty Fellow and financial geographer. His research focuses on examining the role of technological changes in shaping the nature of urban financial centres and financial work, and how people understand and interact with new, emerging financial technologies like bitcoin. He is also interested in studying the networked flows of human capital among financial centres and their effect on urban and regional development. As part of his ongoing research agenda that interrogates the intersections between finance, technology and society, Dr. Tan is currently working on a co-authored book that explores misinformation in the online era from a geographical perspective.
