I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Information Science at the University of Pittsburgh and will complete my degree in spring 2019. As a research assistant in the Personalized Adaptive Web Systems (PAWS) Lab, directed by Prof. Peter Brusilovsky, I have gained extensive research experience in data science and human-computer interaction (HCI), especially in social network analysis, social recommender systems, and intelligent user interfaces. My current research is focused on how to overcome social information overload by leveraging intelligent interfaces to gain recommendation diversity, controllability, and explainability.
I expect to complete my degree in Summer 2019. I am seeking an academic/research position (Fall 2019), and I hoped to find one that would allow me to combine research, teaching, and meaningful community service.
