Two Department of Management PhD students, Ziqi Zhong, PhD Candidate in Marketing, and Susanne Klausing, PhD Candidate in Information Systems and Innovation, have been awarded funding for their research through the prestigious LSE Research and Impact Support Fund (RISF) scheme.
The scheme aims to fund world-class research and knowledge exchange activities by LSE academic, research and policy staff.
Ziqi’s project, titled: "Transcending Privacy Barriers: The Power of Eco-positioning in Enhancing AI Acceptance," examines the influence of eco-positioning on consumer privacy concerns within AI-enabled services.
On receiving the award, Ziqi said: “Receiving the RISF award is a tremendous honour and an opportunity to further my research on AI, privacy, and sustainability. I'm grateful for the support from the community."
Susanne's project is titled: "Practice What You Preach: The Relationship Between AI Narratives and Actions in S&P 500 Companies".

In response to the award, Susanne said: "I am extremely grateful to have received the RISF funding. This grant enables me to conduct a research project on the organizational narratives and application of AI, which we hope will prove beneficial to both academia and society as a whole."

Congratulations to Ziqi and Susanne.
