Brief Introduction

Taberez Ahmed Neyazi joined the Department as Assistant Professor of New Media and Political Communication in July 2017. He is also a Principal Investigator at the Centre for Trusted Internet and Community. He came to the position with considerable international experience living and working in diverse cultural settings in Asia, Europe and America. Taberez uses both qualitative and quantitative computational approaches in his research that ranges from newsroom observation studies, media content and sentiment analysis, to survey and public opinion research.

Taberez's research focuses on political communication and public opinion; computational social science; digital, mobile and social media; communication theory; political Islam; and public policy with a focus on India, Indonesia and South Asia. He also works on political Islam and ethnic politics in India and South Asia. He is the Director of the project Digital Campaign Asia or DigiCamp, which involves studying digital political campaigns of parties, candidates and media and how they engage with the public in the diverse political communication environments of Asia. The DigiCamp team plan to develop it as a platform for graduate students and faculty to learn about computational research and analysis, to develop new campaign research on India, Indonesia and Malaysia, and other Asian countries, and potentially include cross-national comparative research with countries in the European Union, North, and South America.

In addition, Taberez is leading a multi-country project titled, “Artificial Intelligence, disinformation and the public good.” This research employs multi-methods design that includes surveys, online experiments, web tracking data, focus groups and in-depth interviews to understand people’s perception and engagement with emerging technologies that leverage artificial intelligence and whether people can discern disinformation disseminated using subtle means.

He serves on several advisory boards including New Public, which aims to build more flourishing, public-friendly digital spaces. Taberez is also an affiliate of the International Panel on the Information Environment (IPIE). He is on the editorial board of the International Journal of Press/Politics, Commonwealth and Comparative Politics, Political Communication, and has been elected as International Liaison for the ICA Political Communication Division.

Since 2018, he has received eight research grants totaling approximately S$1,428,082. He serves as the Principal Investigator for four of these grants, which cumulatively amount to S$821,582.

He has authored Political Communication and Mobilisation: The Hindi Media in India (Cambridge University Press, 2018) and co-edited Democratic Transformation and the Vernacular Public Arena in India (Routledge, 2014).
