Prof. ZHANG Xinzhi (張昕之)

Position(s) Available

I am looking for PhD students in the 2025 entry to work on digital journalism, political communication, and the social impacts of tech-enhanced human communication (especially content production and dissemination involving GenAI and social media platforms), using experimental design and computational methods. 

I have supervised eight postgraduate students (as the capstone project supervisor) and four research students, since 2018. Most of them are now continuing doctoral studies (in Hong Kong, Europe, and the US) or working as full-time university faculty members in Hong Kong or mainland China. The students under my supervision have won best paper awards at ICA, presented their papers at major international conferences in media and communication, and published papers in top internationally peer-reviewed journals.  

If you are interested in working with me, please email me your CV. You are welcome to apply for the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS) under my supervision in the 2025/26 entry.
