Huiqiao Yuan

PhD Candidate, Researcher

I am a PhD candidate at the Institute of Geography, University of Innsbruck. I completed my postgraduate studies at The University of Sydney in Media Practice. I have a keen interest in immigration, gender, social media and transnational families and how they interact with each other. In my research, I expect to provide insights into the study of adaptation and receptivity of a marginalized segment of Chinese immigrants in Asia and Asian America (e.g., Study-Mothers and low-wage female Chinese immigrants in factory production) across dimensions of digital geographies, income, gender, education, family and to consider certain space questions. In my research, mix-method research will be conducted, including both quantitative and qualitative methods. Considering my background and professional training, I worked in media organizations and PR companies in China and Australia, responsible for news reporting and new media operations. I was also an academic writing teacher at New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc of China.

About Me

In my research, mix-method research will be conducted, including both quantitative and qualitative methods.

 

I completed my postgraduate studies at The University of Sydney in Media Practice and gained deeper insights into the bigger picture of new media, society, and immigration: social media, cultural diversity, and transnational communication. Outside academics, I worked in media organizations and PR companies in both China and Australia, responsible for news reporting and new media operations. I also worked as an academic writing teacher at New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc of China.
