I am an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Information Science (by courtsey) at University of Colorado Boulder. You can learn more about my life trajectory here.
My main research interests include
Language and social dynamics.
The effect of wording, how language influences social interaction, e.g., persuasion and information sharing.
The ecosystem of ideas, how ideas relate to each other and evolve over time, e.g., idea relations and lost in propagation.
Multi-community engagement, how a person interacts with multiple communities and how communities relate to each other, e.g., users' life trajectories, community genealogy, and migrant integration in urbanization.
Human-centered machine learning, how we can use machine learning to empower humans and augment human intelligence such as enhancing creativity and avoiding behavioral biases, e.g., creative writing with a machine in the loop.
