Studying for a PhD in APS is one of my happiest memories and definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made in my lifetime. My supervisor, Professor Kee Lee CHOU, is a world-class scientist whose works has ranked in the top one per cent of scholars on the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) since 2009. That means I have got the best training for scientific design and scientific assessment during my -PhD study, which positively shapes my career path and creates unlimited possibilities for future development. Three-year intensive training offered by Professor Chou and APS established my belief that details is the key to success, which has been internalized by me as a norm when engaging in research activities. Professor Chou and his team design and implement research projects following the highest standards in the international academic community. They are quite clear that every single detail at the design and implementation stage can activate the “butterfly effect” which will finally affect the likelihood of producing correct knowledge. Their calmness, persistence, carefulness, and honesty continuously influenced me, strengthening my determination in working in the Hong Kong academic community after graduation. Notably, Professor Chou, APS, and EdUHK funded a number of my international and regional trips (e.g. Australia, U.K., Germany, Singapore, Russia, Taiwan district) during my PhD study and highlighted the importance of international academic communication and cooperation. Meeting new friends, blending in the local culture, and most importantly, learning from international scholars excite me. I wish to share my great experiences with APS and encourage you to join this wonderful program!
