I am a Research Associate in the Digital Humanities Institute (DHI) responsible for supporting the development of the Linguistic DNA project and other DH research projects. I worked in Hong Kong prior to joining the University of Sheffield.
I am interested in applying digital methods to language studies. While my training was primarily on postcolonial studies and anglophone writings, I have now combined it with my digital skills. The use of computational methods enables me to conduct research on a larger scale of data with objective, evidence-based results. Currently, I am working on a few DH projects which include: 1. quantitative stylistic approach to the study of suspense in Sherlock Holmes, 2. a corpus study on the representation of Hong Kong identity in Cantopop lyrics from 1980s to mid 2010s, and 3. A case study on digital arts and the democratisation of creativity and production in Hong Kong pop culture.
