Biography

Moosung is the youngest Centenary Professor at the University of Canberra. Prior to joining the University of Canberra, he held appointments as Associate Professor and Deputy Director of Education Policy Unit at the University of Hong Kong. His "happy hour" is around 9 to 11 a.m. almost every morning when he enjoys a cup of coffee in his office and tries to write "anything creative." This favorite routine is a lifelong habit, so feel free to visit where you will find him being creative with his coffee mug close by. As an educational researcher and father of three kids, he will be very happy to share his thoughts about education.
