His Masters special project was entitled the Regeneration of Lau Fau Shan, A Unique Eco-cultural Tourism Destination.

Aaron said: “this award would not have happened without the kind guidance and encouragement of all my tutors throughout the process, particularly Laurence Pattacini and James Hitchmough. I am really thankful to have had them as my tutors and for all the support the department has offered over the years. I am proud to be a Sheffield graduate in the Department of Landscape. I hope this also encourages future graduates to continue to shine in the landscape world.”
