Dr Lulu Shi
Oxford Internet Institute
Lulu is a sociologist and her research spans technology, education, work and employment and organisations. She works on the project DomesticAI as a postdoctoral research fellow. In this project she focuses on the transformation of paid and unpaid work in the age of AI and robotics. With her team she designs a cross-national harmonised factorial survey experiment.
Lulu also leads a project funded by the British Academy, which investigates how educational technology (EdTech) transforms education. Specifically, the project studies the role of EdTech firms – who can be seen as the architects behind the technology – in shaping education by considering the socio-political contexts they are embedded in.
During her doctoral studies, she researched on the labour market, skills formation systems and organisation studies with a country comparative focus.
