Short Bio.

I just received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Zhejiang University and joint Ph.D. degree in Media and Communication from City University of Hong Kong.

My main research interests include

1. Computational Social Science

Describe distributions or test causal relations of variables in social phenomena using computational methods, e.g., text mining, user log data, online experiment, and machine learning models.

2. Information Visualization

Test whether a visualization technique, e.g., a line or bar chart, improves the efficiency of data analysis or undermines the accuracy of data analysis. Design a new visualization technique that can help people analyze data.

3. Domain Knowledge Graph Construction for Evaluating Scientific Knowledge

Automatically extract or manually collect knowledge in a scientific domain and build a knowledge graph to obtain insights into the existing knowledge.
