Heng Choon (Oliver) CHAN, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Criminology at City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, SAR. He received his Ph.D. in Criminology from the University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, USA, and was a recipient of the "2012 Outstanding Criminology Ambassador Award." Oliver earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Forensic Psychology. In 2014, Oliver was awarded the honorary title "Early Career Award" by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) of University Grant Committee (UGC) for his outstanding and successful application for the competitive Early Career Scheme (ECS) grant. In 2017, Oliver was awarded "The President's Award" and "CLASS New Researcher Award" by City University of Hong Kong to recognize his exemplary contributions to research and professional education that have helped the University and College to achieve local and global distinction. More importantly, he was granted an early substantiation of appointment (tenured) and promotion to Associate Professor in 2017. When he was in the U.S., Oliver interned and later was employed by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPDC) Homicide Case Review Units as one of its first two Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Violent Criminals Apprehension Program (ViCAP) analysts.

Oliver's research focuses on sexual homicide, offender profiling, sex offending, homicide, stalking behavior, and criminological issues related to the Asian population. He published widely on these topics, especially in the area of sexual homicide. As of April 2017, Oliver has published over 65 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters; and presented at numerous international, regional, and local academic conferences. He has since published two academic books, with one as the sole-author of a monograph on sexual homicide (Palgrave Macmillan, April 2015) and another as a co-editor of an edited volume on the psycho-criminological perspective of Asian criminal justice (i.e., police, correctional, and legal psychology; Routledge, March 2017). Oliver is now working on his next sole-authored monograph on a global casebook of sexual homicide (under contract with University of California Press, forthcoming in 2018). He is an Associate Editor of International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology and an editorial board member on a number of other peer-reviewed journals; and an ad-hoc reviewer for many peer-reviewed journals and academic publishers. Oliver has also been regularly interviewed by electronic media and quoted in print media on criminological issues; and consulted on the offending behavior of violent offenders by television program scriptwriters and movie producers.
