Message to students
Sociology is an exciting academic discipline that studies different aspects of social activities and poses questions even in the seemingly mundane routine of human lives: Why are you leading your life this way?
I welcome free and open discussions on different social issues in my lessons. Students new to the discipline can engage in the journal of social exploration by learning the sociological theories and frameworks and then applying them to diverse topics. I genuinely hope students can enjoy active learning in the interactive classroom environment.
The main career
Ph.D. in Media Sociology, Doshisha University, 2008
As a committed educator, I have actively taken part in different levels of teaching and planning duties, from the development of new courses to the establishment of new educational programs. I have taught social science in Hong Kong tertiary education for more than twelve years.
Before pursuing my Ph.D. studies, I worked as a print and broadcast media journalist. My multilingual proficiency in English, Chinese (Cantonese, Taiwanese, and Mandarin), Malay, and Japanese allows me to navigate the sea of information and present a diverse social world to the students.
My cross-cultural experiences have enabled me the adaptability and versatility to conduct field research in different cultural and social settings. I succeeded in the Public Policy Research Funding, a Hong Kong government research grant, and managed the funding amounted to approximately JPY 9,160,000. I also publish my works in high-impact SSCI journals, such as Men and Masculinities (SSCI 5-year impact factor: 2.6) and Journal of Adolescence (SSCI 2021 impact factor: 3.25).
