  • I am a Ph.D. student in the Cognitive Computations and Social Dynamics lab under Professor Wai-Tat Fu, majoring in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research interests focus on human-computer interaction, especially how various features and interface designs present information, influence users’ behavior, and gradually shape their social opinions.

    Current Projects

    Understanding and Mitigating Effects of Fake News

    The goal is to develop intelligent techniques that encourage the use of effective cognitive strategies to stop the fake news epidemics by increasing users' awareness to potential fake news articles.

    Interface Designs for Social Opinions

    This project aims to design interfaces and create features for social media that persuade people to hear diverse opinions and mitigate their cognitive biases, e.g., selective exposure and social perception biases.

    Designing Chatbots for Enhanced Sociability and Interaction

    I am interested in chatbots and how they can generate social skills and communicate opinions with users in various contexts including healthcare, social media, and education.
