Dani Madrid-Morales
Researcher, observer, journalist, educator

Trained as a journalist and ‘Asianist’, my vocation is being curious. I am currently a HK PhD Fellow at City University of Hong Kong. I previously worked for almost a decade as a scriptwriter, reporter and editor at Televisió de Catalunya. I have also taught media-related and East Asia-related courses at City University of Hong Kong, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.

My academic interests lay at the crosspoint of communications, politics and popular culture. Geographically, my work focuses on East Asia, where I have lived and studied for several years. Thematically, my work crosses different areas, including international communication, popular culture in East Asia, media representations and portrayals of contemporary Asia, as well as computational social sciences.
