Professor Haiqing Yu has been appointed as a Chief Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making & Society (ADM+S) where she will contribute her expertise to the Centre’s People and Data Research Programs, and play a leading role in the mentoring and development of higher degree research students and early career researchers.
Professor Yu is an ARC Future Fellow (2021-2025) and Vice-Chancellor’s Principal Research Fellow in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University. She is a leading expert in digital China research and internationally renowned for her interdisciplinary research on the social, cultural, and political impacts of digital technologies, media, communication, and culture in China, Australia, and the Asia Pacific.
Her current work examines the lived experience of the social credit system (and associated technologies, policies, and politics) among individuals, families, and communities in China as part of an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship project ‘Social Credit System and Everyday Life in China’ [FT200100100].
“It is already a great opportunity to be part of the ADMS Centre; it is an honour to become a Chief Investigator at the Centre, to be able to work with so many brilliant colleagues across disciplines, organisations, and countries to explore and envision our diversified world and future,” she said.
Professor Yu was previously an Associate Investigator at ADM+S where she demonstrated leadership in Chinese digital media, communication and culture and their sociopolitical impact in China, Australia and the Asia Pacific.
She has made significant research contributions through high-profile academic publications and opinion pieces, international media interviews, invited keynotes at international universities, and collaborations with international research leaders.
