I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism and Communication, the Chinese University of Hong Kong(CUHK). I received my PhD from the Web Mining Lab, Department of Media and Communication at City University of Hong Kong. I got two bachelor degrees from Shanghai Jiao Tong University before I came to CityU for my PhD degree, one in Media and Communication and another in Mathematics.
My research interests and background cut across science and social science, ranging from social-web data mining, computational media studies to political communication and public health. Currently, I am working on several interdisciplinary projects at the intersection of computational social science (analytical approach) and social media studies (data source). I have published numerous articles in SSCI/SCI indexed journals such as Human Communication Research, New Media & Society, International Journal of Public Opinion Research, Social Science Computer Review, and PLOS ONE.
