Hello! I’m Shan Jiang, a 2nd-year Ph.D. student at College of Computer and Information Science, Northeastern University, Boston. I’m advised by an amazing professor Christo Wilson.

I’m interested in developing algorithmic methods to audit online platforms. Currently, I’m exploring how misinformation (rumor, “fake news”, etc.) and fact-checking affect people on social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc.). Previously, I studied Google’s search results on hyperpartisan news sites, and the accessibility of Uber, Lyft and taxi services. Broadly speaking, I work around Social Computing and Computational Social Science.

Before joining Northeastern, I received my B.B.A. in Information Management and Information Systems from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, China, and did my undergraduate thesis at National University of Singapore, Singapore.
