PhD Supervision

I welcome inquiries about PhD and MPhil supervision from all students interested in studying at the Department of Sociology and Social Policy, Lingnan University, Hong Kong SAR.

Ideally, research proposals will broadly match my academic areas of interest, but I will consider all proposals.
