Marius Chan was educated in Canada and the UK. After completing his PhD in early modern literature at the University of Manchester, he worked as a research administrator and visiting lecturer in literature and critical theory at the University of Westminster, London. From 2012-15, he was a lecturer in the Department of English at the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, and most recently he was Assistant Professor of English Literature at the United International College run collaboratively by Beijing Normal University and Hong Kong Baptist University. Currently, in addition to working as a part-time lecturer and research administrator for SLAM, he is Managing Editor for the journals Social Identities and African Identities.

Marius has taught courses in literature and film studies, literary theory, modern drama, Gothic fiction, the short story, and island literature, among others. He has also taught English for Academic Purposes, and has worked privately as a professional editor, proofreader and education consultant.

His research and teaching interests include: East Asian diasporic narratives in English; literary and filmic representations of islands and coastal regions; environmental criticism and the energy humanities. He is currently working on a project that interprets the East Asian diasporic novel of return as a reckoning with anxieties about the Anthropocene.
