Lu Guan, a PhD student of our department, has received an Outstanding Research Papers Awards Scheme for PhD Students from the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS). The scheme is to award PhD students for publishing in top quality journals during their studies and will grant HK$5,000 to cover the cost of copy-editing.
Lu was awarded for her publication, entitled “Who is tracking health on mobile devices: A behavioral logfile analysis in Hong Kong”, on JMIR mHealth and uHealth in 2019. In her article, she analyzed users’ mHealth app activities from a representative panel of about 2500 users in Hong Kong. The findings suggest the use of mHealth apps demonstrates a significant temporal pattern and such temporal pattern is moderated by individuals’ demographic characteristics.
