PhD Student and Graduate Teaching Assistant

Mr Angus Siu-cheong Li

School/Department: Criminology, School of



I joined the School of Criminology in September 2022 as a PhD Student and Graduate Teaching Assistant.

I obtained my BSSc (Hons) in Sociology (First Class Honours) from Hong Kong Baptist University, Master of Cultural Studies (Distinction) from Lingnan University and MPhil in Humanities (no corrections) from Hong Kong Baptist University.

During my MPhil tenure, I also served as a teaching assistant. Over the past few years, I was involved in various research projects in the areas of policing, police oversight, identity politics, social activism and public health in Hong Kong and the inter-Asia context.


My current PhD research is titled ‘New Home, New View(s)? A Qualitative Study of Hongkonger Migrants’ Trust in the Police in the United Kingdom’.

It aims to unravel how trust in the police is constructed amongst Hongkonger migrants, examine the negotiation process of their migrant identity, and consider the ways in which lived experiences in their place of origin have influenced how their relations with the police are comprehended.
