Ricky Chan joined City University of Hong Kong as Assistant Professor in August 2017. He obtained his PhD from University of Cambridge (2017), and previously taught as Lecturer at Lancaster University, UK (2016-17).
His current research interests include implicit/incidental learning of phonological patterns, the evidential value of prosodic features in speech for forensic casework, English accents and variation, and the phonetics and phonology of prosody (especially lexical tones).
