Awardee of President’s Award 2018 for Outstanding Performance in Research Supervision by HK Baptist University
Professor Chan has developed efficient strategies and uses her excellent networking capabilities in recruiting quality research candidates. In 2010 she and colleagues visited six universities in Eastern Europe to recruit PhD students. Once candidates have been selected, she devotes great effort to looking after their personal lives as well as their research studies. She also spends a great deal of time in coaching the skills needed for academic publishing. Professor Chan has published 15 conference papers, 16 journal articles and six book chapters with the University’s graduates and exchange students. She supports her students in their job searches by writing letters of recommendation and coaches them on career planning. These efforts have contributed to the good results achieved by her students, who have benefited enormously from her mentor ship both before and after graduation.
