Welcome! I am Xinzhi Zhang. This is my profile page.

My research areas include comparative political communication, new media and social change, social movements, data-driven journalism, new media and public health, and emerging information and communication technologies and the sociology of news. As a social scientist by training, I am expending the research repertoire to computational social science and digital humanities. I have published 17 peer-reviewed academic research articles (14 SCI/SSCI journals), all since 2012, including Computers in Human Behavior, Digital Journalism, International Political Science Review, International Journal of Communication, Telecommunications Policy, International Communication Gazette, and Policy & Internet.

Currently I am a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Journalism of Hong Kong Baptist University. It is my honor to serve as the Programme Director of the interdisciplinary concentration of Data and Media Communication. Before joining the Baptist U in 2016, I was a Lecturer and the Co-Convener of the Academic Discipline of Humanities at the School of Professional Education and Executive Development at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (2014-16). I obtained both Ph.D. in Media and Communication (2013) and M.A. with Distinction in Communication and New Media (2009) from the Department of Media and Communication at City University of Hong Kong.

Besides scholarly activities, I am a keen lover of classic music, films, and stage drama. I play piano and jazz drum.
