APS faculty members honored by EdUHK President’s Awards

May 2021

The Presentation Ceremony of President’s Awards for Outstanding Performance in Teaching, Research, Knowledge Transfer and Administrative Service 2019/20 and 2020/21 was successfully held on 27 May 2021. Two faculty members of the Department of Asian and Policy Studies (APS) have been conferred with this prestigious award in the domains of teaching and research, respectively.

Dr Isabella Ng Fung-sheung, Assistant professor of APS has been awarded the Presidents’ Award for Outstanding Performance in Teaching. Trained as a feminist anthropologist, she applies her research approach to teaching by engaging students in long-term community, policy and research work. Her research training facilitated her adoption of her 3Cs approach – Collaboration, Co-production and Camaraderie – as a way of combining training in the tangible skills of co-construction and application of knowledge, and the intangible personal attributes of resilience, compassion, passion, love and empathy.

Dr Alex HE Jingwei, Associate Professor of APS, has been awarded the President’s Award for Outstanding Performance in Research (Research Excellence Award). Dr He’s main research areas are public policy analysis, health policy and reforms, and comparative social policy.

As Principal Investigator, Dr He secured funding from the Early Career Scheme (ECS), the General Research Fund (GRF), the Public Policy Research (PPR) Funding Scheme, and the World Health Organization (WHO) in the past five years.
