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 an amazing professor Christo Wilson.

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.
