About me

edited_xam14I am the George Gerbner Postdoctoral Fellow at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania. In fall 2019, I will join the School of Journalism and Communication at the Chinese University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor in global media. My research takes an interdisciplinary and transnational approach to address the intricate relationship between communication technology, gender, sexuality, and culture. Currently, I am researching on Chinese dating app culture. I am a mixed-methods researcher. Before pursuing my PhD, I worked as a advertising copywriter in Hong Kong. Clients included HSBC, Red Bull, Wyndham Hotels, and others. I am a Hong Konger and hold a PhD in communication from the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California. Email me at sam.chan@asc.upenn.edu or follow @liksamchan.

I speak Cantonese, English, Chinese, and basic Japanese.
