about

My name is Lokman Tsui. I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Journalism and Communication of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). I research free expression and internet policy.

From 2011 to 2014, I was the Head of Free Expression for Asia and the Pacific at Google. Before I joined Google, I was an Assistant Professor in Media and Communication at City University of Hong Kong from 2010-2011. I received my PhD degree from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania; my dissertation received the Gene Burd Journalism Research Prize for Best Dissertation in Journalism Studies.

I was a Fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society from 2008-2009. I am also co-editor of The Hyperlinked Society: Questioning Connections in the Digital Age (2008) together with Dr. Turow. I was guest editor of China Information for a theme issue on the socio-political impact of the Internet in China. My articles have appeared in Global Dialogue, China Information and in the newsletter for the International Institute for Asian Studies.

I also blog at Shouting Loudly (together with friends Bill Herman, Dave Karpf, Paul Falzone and Jason Tocci).
