San Ho Chung

Ph.D. Student

Sanho Chung is a Ph.D. student majoring in Comparative Politics and minoring in Methodology from the School of Government and Public Policy (SGPP), University of Arizona. His research interests are threefold. First, he studies dynamics of social groups (particularly elite coalitions and social movements) under authoritarian regimes and intends to understand how they differ from those in democracies. Also, he pays specific attention to the Politics of Hong Kong and Taiwan. Besides, due to his curiosity about interactions between human beings, he is an amateur enthusiast in social network analysis. Sanho obtained his Master of International Relations (Advanced) from Australian National University in 2016. Before so, he received his B.SoSc in Government and International Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2015. Prior to his doctoral study in the SGPP, he worked on several research projects concerning contentious politics and identity in Hong Kong. His collaborated articles based on these works have appeared in China Perspectives and Contemporary Chinese Political Economy and Strategic Relations: An International Journal.
Beyond academic research, as a Hongkonger Sanho is a diehard fan of the Hong Kong national football (soccer) team."
