As a social scientist by training, my research focuses on computational communication studies and digital humanities. My major research themes include (1) comparative political communication; (2) the sociology of digital journalism; (3) media and public health; and (4) digital popular culture.
I have published 17 peer-reviewed research articles on top-tier journals such as Computers in Human Behavior, Health Communication, Digital Journalism, International Political Science Review, International Journal of Communication, among others. [Here is my publication list]
I have been appointed as the founding Programme Director of Master of Science in AI and Digital Media, which is the first postgraduate programme of its kind in Hong Kong. I was one of the founding members—and later being appointed as the Programme Director—of Data and Media Communication Concentration (2017 - 19), an interdisciplinary undergraduate concentration on data-driven storytelling and computational investigative reporting.
