About Me

I'm a PhD candidate in the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (my "official" webpage). I'm fortunately advised by Dr. Madelyn Rose Sanfilippo and Dr. Rachel F. Adler. I also work closely with Dr. Ted Underwood at UIUC, Dr. Xin Tong at Duke Kunshan University, and Dr. Jinjun Xiong at the University at Buffalo. I'm affiliated with the Governance Lab on Sociotechnical Systems (GLOSS), the Information Experience and Accessibility Lab, and DKU HCI Lab.

I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Technology from Hongyi Honor College at Wuhan University, China. Previously, I was a visiting researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, advised by Dr. Justin Hsu, Fudan University, advised by Dr. Xianghua (Sharon) Ding, Westlake University, advised by Dr. Yue Zhang, and the University of Maryland-College Park, advised by Dr. Furong Huang. I was a research intern at Tencent, Bytedance, and Zall Research Institute of Smart Commerce.
