Qiu-Hong’s expertise lies in the field of economics of information systems, with a specific emphasis on cybersecurity policy and threat analytics. She conducted pioneering and comprehensive research on the effects and mechanisms concerning the enforcement of cybercrimes, encompassing frameworks such as the Convention on Cybercrimes and the Computer Misuse Acts. A significant part of Qiu-Hong's work involves utilising extensive data on internet topology, firewall logs and user-generated-content in online social platforms. She employs this data to develop models for critical infrastructure and to infer and analyse cyber threats using machine learning methods and networking techniques. Her research has been published in MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, Journal of Management Information Systems, Communications of the ACM, Decision Support Systems, Information Systems Frontier, and IEEE Security & Privacy.
