Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

Van Noort is a Lecturer in Politics and Policy at the University of the West of Scotland, UK, of which she has been part since 2018. She obtained her PhD from the University of Otago, New Zealand, and is recognized as an emerging scholar in the field of strategic communication, doing interdisciplinary research on various topics such as: communication and power, China, multilateral cooperation, and infrastructure investment and financing. 

Current research activities

My current research is to better understand China’s use of strategic communication in influencing public debate about its infrastructure investment and financing plans. Communication is studied from a sender perspective (e.g., China), and an audience perspective, and includes mediated forms of communication (e.g., social media, news media and government websites). The result of this communication process – between sender and audiences – will identify China’s strategic communication strategies.
