Angela Xiao Wu


Angela Xiao Wu's research examines the connections between emerging technologies and cultural changes, with a focus on the socially constituted ways in which people encounter and engage the mediated environment. Drawing from media studies, science and technology studies, cultural sociology, and network science, her works employ mixed methodologies. Her current projects explore these areas: (1) data analytics and algorithmic cultures, (2) web use and digital infrastructures, and (3) information technology, politics, and post-reform China.

Previously, Wu was an Assistant Professor at the School of Journalism and Communication, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Wu received her PhD from the Media, Technology and Society program at Northwestern University, an M.Phil. in Communication from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a BA in Journalism and Communication with a Minor in Applied Computer Science from Tsinghua University, China.
