Biography

Dr Lennon Yao-chung Chang is currently a lecturer in criminology in the School of Social Sciences at Monash University, Australia. He was an assistant professor of criminology in the Department of Applied Social Sciences at the City University of Hong Kong. He is also an associate investigator at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security at the Australian National University and a member of International Cybercrime Research Centre at Simon Fraser University. He is a co-founder and vice-chairman of the Asia Pacific Association of Technology and Society


He was awarded his PhD by the Australian National University in November 2010. He has a Master in Criminology and Bachelor in Law degrees from National Taipei University. In 2007 he received an Endeavour Asia Award and in 2009 was identified by Peking University and Griffith Asia Institute as an Australia-China Emerging Leader. He was recently selected as a Global Emerging Voices Fellow and an Australia-China Youth Dialogue Fellow.


From 2005 to 2007, he worked as a researcher and project manager at the Science and Technology Law Centre, Institute for Information Industry, which is recognized as one of the most important think-tanks in Taiwan in the area of legal responses to new technology. Before joining City University of Hong Kong, he worked as a post-doctoral research officer at the Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security at the Australian National University.


Dr Chang is interested in researching crime and governance of cyberspace - cybercrime, cyber terrorism and cyber warfare. He is particularly interested in the regulation and governance of cyberspace in the Asia-Pacific region. His book Cybercrime in the Greater China Region: Regulatory Responses and Crime Prevention (Edward Elgar, 2012) is about the nature and range of responses to cybercrime between China and Taiwan. His research is highly topical and he has been invited by the governments of Canada, Taiwan, Korea, and Hong Kong to discuss his research findings with senior national security, foreign policy and policing staff.


Dr Chang’s professional interest in China continues and he is currently researching on-line vigilantism in China. He is also undertaking NGO-sponsored research into cybercrime and cyber-deviance among Hong Kong juveniles.
