About

Hello! I’m a 3rd-year Ph.D. student at College of Computer and Information Science, Northeastern University, Boston, MA. I’m very lucky to be advised by the amazing Christo Wilson.

My research interests broadly lie in the intersection between computer/web and human/society. I’m currently working on understanding the ecosystem of misinformation, from partisan and “fake” news to fact-checking and platform moderation. I’m also working on auditing bias in algorithmic systems. My research utilizes a toolbox of statistical and causal analysis, natural language processing, machine learning, etc.

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.
