Di Wu

Di's research and practice focus on the intersection of disability justice and technology in China. Her recent projects examine the hidden labor of disabled persons in China's AI industry, and the myriad roles that disability and persons with disabilities played in the history of technology in the social and political context of mainland China.

Di's research is informed by her previous work on disability rights advocacy in China as an NGO founder, a United Nations program manager, and a trained facilitator. She holds a Master's degree from the University of Oxford, earning a “Barbara Harriss-White Dissertation Prize” in 2013 with her research on gender-based violence in India.
