Diyi Liu

Former Research Fellow, Offenes Fellowship

Diyi's doctoral research focuses on algorithmic content moderation and the legitimacy of governance over online speech in South and Southeast Asian contexts within platform ecosystems. She aims to explore how insights from users on the ground can contribute to policymaking regarding digital platforms and the moderation of borderline content.

Her work has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as the International Journal of Communication, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, and Frontiers in Psychology, as well as in news outlets like The Diplomat. Previously, she interned with UNESCO's Communication and Information Unit, where she played a significant role in pilot research applying the Internet Universality Indicators framework in Thailand. She has also been involved in communicating about ongoing initiatives related to the Guidelines for the Governance of Digital Platforms. Currently pursuing a DPhil at the OII, Diyi is concurrently a visiting PhD student at the National University of Singapore (Fall 2023) and an open research fellow at the Weizenbaum Institute (2024). She completed her BA and MA in International Journalism and Communication in China before embarking on her DPhil, which is generously supported by the Clarendon Scholarship.
