My research interests broadly lie in the intersection between internet/web and human/society. 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 accessibility of Uber, Lyft and taxi services.
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.
