PhD Candidate, Griffith University
Ausma Bernot is a PhD Candidate at the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Griffith University. She has seven years of work experience with forensic science and research organisations across the globe, in particular China, where she had the chance to gain insights on how technologies are governed at provincial and national levels. Being fluent in Mandarin and building on existing networks in China, Ausma has excellent capabilities to access key information on both technology and governance in the country.
Her current research focuses on the effects that the merging of infotech and biotech triggers in the fields of governance, surveillance, policing, and public safety. Ausma’s doctoral research explores the dynamic interaction between surveillance technologies and social context and questions totalisation of surveillance in China.
When she is not reading or writing about surveillance, you could find her exploring the wonders of the nature around Queensland.
