Hi there, I'm Kai Xiang!

(You can call me Kai or Kai Xiang!)

I am a storyteller and researcher, passionate about peace and security, tech policy, and countering online harms. My research and work thus far has focused on information policy, internet studies, and digital strategy.

🏳️‍🌈✊Making a personal difference and striving towards better institutions and governance are the main drivers of my work. I excel at developing persuasive and innovative content, extracting insights from data and analytics, and building effective digital strategies.

Currently freelancing and always on the lookout for opportunities to collaborate and create interesting things, or opportunities relating to policy / security / communications.

Research interests: My research focuses on issues at the intersection of data and society.

In my spare time: I produce content (🎮 games and interactive media, 🖨️ procedural generation, and 📝 journalism).
