Ingrid Volkmer is Professor and Head, Media and Communications Program, University of Melbourne. She previously held visiting positions at the London School of Economics, Harvard, MIT, University of Vienna, and the University of Amsterdam.

Her research is focused on how digital communications and big data are creating new models for transnational communication. Her work addresses these new models in a broad range of areas from public communication and notions of digital citizenship, to the implications for politics and international relations, and the development of new frameworks for transnational digital/data policy. For details of Professor Volkmer’s recent publications in this area, see the publications tab.Professor Volkmer is actively engaged in public policy development in this area. She is the global public communications expert on the International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP), an interdisciplinary group of 200 leading international scholars.
