teaching

I have taught and proposed several interdisciplinary courses on digital media studies, multimedia storytelling, and the application of data science in media communication, such as AI for Digital Media, Computational Journalism, Social Media Data Acquisition and Processing, and Integrated Data-Driven Storytelling.

I am looking for PhD/Mphil students and research assistants working for interdisciplinary projects related to computational journalism and data-driven storytelling, social media data analytics, and digital popular culture. Please email me your CV and credentials if you are interested. You are also welcome to apply the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS).
