Dr Yingqin Zheng

Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the emerging and changing practices, processes and discourses related to information and communication technologies (ICTs) in organisational and social transformation.

A core area of my research is ICT for Development (ICT4D) which explores the role of digital technology in engendering sustainable social and economic development, with particular interests in marginality, inequality, social inclusion and digital social innovation. Another stream of my research relates to organisational learning and distributed innovation.

I am co-convenor of the Digital Organisation and Society Research Theme Group at the School of Management, RHUL, which encompasses an interdisciplinary group of scholars working at the forefront of research that addresses the implications of digital technology for organisations and society. 

I welcome PhD applications to conduct qualitative research in the area of ICT for Development, or critical issues in the digital economy such as inclusive innovation, digital labour, privacy and surveillance, and digital development in general. The School of Management and RHUL provide a number of PhD scholarships for EU and overseas applicants.
