LU researchers honoured at 2022 RGC Award Presentation Ceremony



Six researchers of Lingnan University were honoured at the Research Grants Council (RGC) Award Presentation Ceremony held on 7 November 2022 for their outstanding achievements in research.


Dr Daniel PALLIES (Department of Philosophy), Dr WU Zeying (Department of Government and International Affairs), Dr Francisco Javier OLIVOS RAVE (Department of Sociology and Social Policy) and Dr Edward Kwabena AMEYAW (School of Graduate Studies) received RGC Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme (PDFS) awards, which encourage worldwide postdoctoral researchers to take up a university career to strengthen Hong Kong’s research talent.


Prof Denise TANG Tse Shang (Department of Cultural Studies) received the Humanities and Social Sciences Prestigious Fellowship Scheme (HSSPFS) award for her project ‘Not Just Another Guy: Transgender Men in the Workplace’, and Prof Ruby LAI Yuen Shan (Department of Sociology & Social Policy) was given the Early Career Award (ECA) for her Early Career Scheme (ECS) project ‘Gendering Informal Housing: Intersectional Inequalities and the Resilience of Families Living in Subdivided Units in Hong Kong’. It is gratifying for LU to have secured a place in each of the highly competitive HSSPFS and ECA, where only ten and seven projects respectively were granted this year across the sector.


Introduced in 2012, the HSSPFS and ECS are designated for Humanities and Social Sciences researchers and promising early career academics respectively to benefit the local research community and encourage research culture on a continuous basis.
