Francis L. F. Lee (PhD, Stanford University, 2003) is currently Professor and Head of Graduate Division at the School of Journalism and Communication. His main research interests reside in political communication, journalism studies, public opinion analysis, and media and social movements. His most recent book is Talk Radio, the Mainstream Press, and Communication of Public Opinion in Hong Kong (Hong Kong University Press, 2014), a book that examines the historical transformation and contemporary social influence of talk radio as a medium to communicate public opinion in the city. He is the lead author of Media, Social Mobilization and Mass Protests in Post-colonial Hong Kong (with Joseph M. Chan, Routledge, 2011), a book that summarizes years of research on the development and evolution of the pro-democracy protest movement in the city since 2003. Lee is also the lead editor of Frontiers in New Media Research (with Louis Leung, Jack Qiu, and Donna Chu, Routledge, 2012) and co-editor of Media and Politics in Post-handover Hong Kong (with Joseph Chan, Routledge, 2008).
His book Communication, Public Opinion, and Globalization in Urban China (with Chin-chuan Lee, Mike Yao, T.K. Chang, Fen Lin, and Fei Shen, Routledge, 2013) presents a systematic analysis of a representative survey on urban Chinese people's local and transnational social relations, national and foreign media usage, and attitudes toward other countries and the processes of globalization. 
Francis Lee is also currently Associate Editor of the Chinese Journal of Communication as well as Mass Communication & Society.
