Hai Liang

Dr Hai Liang is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Journalism and Media Studies Centre at the University of Hong Kong.

His research interest and background cross science and social science, ranging from social-web data-mining and online user behavior to political deliberation and computational advertising. I have long-term collaborations with neuropsychologists, physicists, and computer scientists. Currently, I am working on several interdisciplinary projects at the intersection of computational science and online human communication (political discussion in particular). He has published numerous articles in SSCI/SCI indexed journals such as Human Communication Research, International Journal of Public Opinion Research, and Social Science Computer Review.

In addition, he has rich experience in the industry, including traditional media, marketing research, and IT companies. He was invited to be an intern researcher at Microsoft Research Asia to conduct big data mining of online user habit in 2013.

Dr Hai Liang received his PhD from the Web Mining Laboratory at City University of Hong Kong in July 2014. He got two bachelor degrees from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, one in Media and Communication and another in Mathematics.
