Yee-Fui researches in the areas of political integrity and the law, as well as the interaction between public law and politics. She is particularly interested in the influences on the contemporary Executive, such as ministerial advisers, the media and lobby groups, which have led to reactive government decision-making and policy-making.
Yee-Fui is author of The Rise of Political Advisors in the Westminster System (Routledge, forthcoming 2018) and Ministerial Advisers in Australia: The Modern Legal Context (Federation Press, 2016), which was a finalist for the Holt Prize. She also co-wrote the chapter on the Executive (with Terence Daintith) in the Oxford Handbook of the Australian Constitution (forthcoming 2018).
She was awarded the Monash Silver Jubilee Postgraduate Research Scholarship, as the highest ranking PhD applicant in the University, as well as the Monash Postgraduate Law Dean's Award, as the top-ranking PhD applicant in the Monash Law Faculty.
Yee-Fui's work has been recognised by the federal Parliament. She was invited to deliver a significant public lecture on the accountability of ministerial advisers as part of the 2017 Senate Occasional Lecture Series. She was also invited to give evidence to a federal parliamentary inquiry into political donations and has written a key report for the New South Wales Electoral Commission on the regulation of political lobbying.
She is a prolific commentator on contemporary political issues in both electronic and broadcast media, including in The Conversation, ABC radio and SBS television. In 2017, Yee-Fui was the winner of the RMIT University Media Star of the Year Award for the College of Business.
