Biography

I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism & Communication at Peking University, China. I am also the vice director of PKU’s Health Communication Master’s Program. My research focuses on the application of media effects theories in the digital context, emerging communication technologies, and computational social sciences. Recently, I have been focusing on the relationships between social media messages and health perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors, as well as the network and intermedia agenda setting effects across legacy and social media. I have won six Top Paper Awards from AEJMC among other awards. Apart from research and teaching, I am also committed to scholarly and social services. In my spare time, I am a big fan of skyfaring and spontaneous trips.

苏岩,北京大学新闻与传播学院助理教授、博士生导师,健康传播硕士项目副主任。已发表期刊论文30余篇,主持、参与多项国家级与省部级科研基金。

我的研究主要围绕两个领域:一是数字时代的议程设置效果。我使用计算社会科学研究方法,探索网络议程设置与媒介间议程设置效果,旨在厘清传统媒介与新兴传播技术在对社会议题与相关属性议程的建构上存在何种互惠机制,勾勒出议程设置效果在不同维度上的强度与议程流动的方向性,进一步挖掘和探佚议程建构的文化性、社会性、组织性和个体性动因。这一研究议程部分成果已发表在Journalism,Journalism Studies,Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly等SSCI新闻学顶尖期刊。我的第二个研究议程关涉媒介研究与健康研究的交叉点。通过使用调查、实验等定量方法,探究不同的信源使用、信息接触行为、素养因素对健康观念、态度、行为与决策的影响。这一研究议程的部分成果已发表在New Media & Society,Journalism,Mass Communication & Society,Computers in Human Behavior等SSCI传播学与媒介研究顶尖期刊。自2019年以来,我的科研成果已获得多个学术奖项,包括6项AEJMC“最佳论文奖”等。

自2021年8月入职北京大学以来,我承担多门课程的教学工作,执教了包括《传媒伦理与法律法规》、《新媒介社会学》、《新兴传播技术研究专题》、《新闻与传播研究生学术实践前沿工作坊》、《健康传播前沿探讨》、《健康传播学研究:理论与方法》在内的博士研究生、硕士研究生与本科生课程。

在科研、教学工作之外,我也致力于学术与社会服务性工作。我担任Frontiers in Communication特刊客座编辑,任传播学知名期刊Chinese Journal of Communication编辑顾问委员会委员(2023-2027),受邀为30余份同行评议期刊担任审稿人,并为ICA、AEJMC等传播学顶尖国际会议担任评议人、主持人、审稿人。

【博士招生方向】新兴传播技术、数字媒介效果、健康传播。
