Li Zhao


I joined the School of Media and Communication as a PhD researcher in 2018, supervised by Dr Tom Tyler and Dr Helen Thornham. My research focused on mobile games and convergence media. Before this, I received a BA in Broadcasting and Television Journalism (in 2011) from Zhongnan University of Economics and Law (China) and an MA in New Media (in 2017) from the University of Leeds. I also worked as a television program producer and a web editor in China for four years.
