My name is Jie Qin. I am currently the Professor of Communication at Savannah College of Art and Design and a member of Web Mining Lab.

Theoretically, the vision of my research is to advance classical communication theories and practices in the context of emerging communication technology. Methodologically, the vision of my research is to advance communication studies with computational methods. Practically, the vision of my research is to help foster greater social impact by working hand-in-hand with people who give help to the helpless and give voice to the voiceless.

Incorporating diversity and inclusion is the most important part of my teaching philosophy. I strive to give individual attention to every student and tailor teaching materials to ensure that all students feel supported. The goals of my teaching are to provide lifelong learning skills in an ever changing and complex global environment and to help students of every background become a creative force in fields that shape our society. According to CliftonStrengths assessment, I am a “Maximizer”, who seeks to transform something strong into something superb. This is my commitment to teaching – to see the best students can become and inspire them to achieve it.
