A few words about me

I have served as a secondary school teacher, as a lecturer at Northcote College of Education, and as an educational psychologist with the Education Department (Psychological Services, Special Education Section) of the Hong Kong Government. My academic and professional interests are in the areas of school guidance and counseling, gifted education and talent development, inclusive education and learners with special needs, positive psychology, social-emotive learning, life career development and individual differences. I am the principal investigator of the Connectedness and Life Skills Development projects. I coordinate courses in guidance & counselling, gifted education and career development, and I supervise postgraduate research student dissertations. I am the co-director of Centre for Advancement in Inclusive and Special Education and the director of Laboratory and Programme for Creativity and Talent Development. I am also co-convener of the Special Interest Group for School Guidance, Life Skills and Career Development at the HKU Faculty of Education. My other interests include table tennis, movies, photography, museums, and travelling.
