My research primarily focuses on (1) social and policy implications of emerging technologies; and (2) global Internet industry and policy.
Social and Policy Implications of Emerging Technologies
I am interested in exploring the social, ethical and policy dimensions of emerging digital technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Global Internet Industry and Policy
Book project: Beyond the "Giant Cage" Metaphor: The Rise of Global Digital China
I'm also working on a book project on the policy and political economy of China's outward expansion in global cyberspace. Based on my PhD dissertation, it examines the multifaceted interactions between China and the global internet in the past three decades, especially China's outward cyber expansion, or the "going out" program that has gained momentum since the mid-2000s, and explores the changing social class relations that accompany and shape this new movement.
