We are very happy that Dr Wen Ma has been awarded a prestigious ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship. Wen recently completed her PhD in which she investigated public responses to the Chinese Social Credit Score and explored implications for internet uses and, specifically, the future of social media. The PhD wa supervised by Arne Hintz and Lina Dencik.
As part of her Postdoc, she will expand her analysis of citizen scoring, connecting her doctoral research with work of the Data Justice Lab. This project will be supervised by Emiliano Trere and Arne Hintz and will commence in October this year.
