About me

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.

*** Update: I’ll be joining the Penn State University as an Assistant Research Professor from Fall 2019.
