I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Hong Kong Baptist University. My research interests include Race and Ethnicity, International Migration, Social Media, Social Networks, Culture and Identity. My Ph.D. dissertation investigates identity politics overseas, social interactions between Chinese migrants and non-Asian Australians, contested Chinese culture across borders, and the integration experiences of both long-term and temporary Chinese migrants in Australia. In a secondary line of the research, currently I am undertaking a two-year funded project, titled: Shaping Discrimination? Tracking Print Media and Social Media Portrayal of Mainlanders in Hong Kong since 1997. My other funded and collaborative projects include a project which received a Faculty Research Grant II (titled: New Forms of Discrimination? Re-examining the Online Discourses of Discrimination on Airbnb) and an audit study funded by Start-up Grant (Tier II) on hiring practices and discrimination in finance-related industries in Hong Kong.
