Ms May Poon received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (concentration in personality development and clinical process) from the California State University, Hayward in 1996. Fascinated by the intriguing nature of the subject, she continued to pursue her study at the San Francisco State University where she was awarded a Master of Arts in Social Psychology.

Prior to joining HKCC, she had earned five years of tertiary education experience as a full-time teaching assistant in the Department of Education Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University. She was involved in teaching undergraduate subjects including Principles of Psychology, Counseling Theories and Practice, Social Psychology, Psychology of Personality, Psychology of Work, Education and Human Development, Education and Society and Psychology of Learning and Instruction.

Besides teaching, she was also a member of various departmental sub-committees and projects, lending her support to undergraduate, postgraduate, and master level programmes; her experiences spanned educational research, continuous professional development for teachers, students' placement, quality assurance, new program development, admission, and marketing.

Ms Poon joined HKCC in August 2005. Currently, she teaches Human Behaviour and Social Environment and Chinese Psychology: Chinese Mind and Hong Kong Behaviours.

Her areas of academic interests include interpersonal processes, non-verbal behaviours, cross-cultural psychology, group dynamics, moral education, and personality development.
