I am a 3rd year PhD student in School of Information at University of Michigan, where I am advised by Prof.Daniel Romero. My research interest is broadly in computational social science and information diffusion. I apply data science methods including causal inference, network analysis, natural language processing, and machine learning, to measure, understand, and promote creativity and innovation in various domains, such as science, art, and organization.
