About me

GX6A7075_edited.jpgI am an assistant professor and the coordinator of the global communication undergraduate major at the School of Journalism and Communication, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Previously, I was the George Gerbner Postdoctoral Fellow at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania. My research takes an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and mixed-methods approach to examine the intricate relationship between digital media, gender, and culture. Currently, I am researching on global dating app cultures. I hold a Ph.D. in communication from the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California.

I serve on the editorial board of the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships.

Before pursuing my Ph.D., I worked as a advertising copywriter in Hong Kong. Clients included HSBC, Red Bull, Wyndham Hotels, and others. I speak Cantonese, English, Mandarin, and basic Japanese.
