Research interests

Thesis: Construction of risk society: A corpus-based analysis of climate change, global warming, and air pollution in Taiwanese political talk shows

In my PhD research, I investigate how political talk shows reproduce environmental issues in terms of agenda-setting, content, and tone in Taiwan, and ask how public understanding of and public engagement with, an environmental topic is reflected in YouTube metrics and comments. Also, my research interests derive from my background, which was in communication and journalism, and have observed the problem of derivative social risks under the flourishing development of new media.
