I am a Ph.D student at School of Information Sciences (iSchool), University of Pittsburgh. My major is Information Science. Currently, I work in Computational Social Science Lab which is directed by Dr. Yu-Ru Lin. I am broadly interested in data science, network science, and computational science. With the escalating amount of heterogeneous data and complex networks, I explore analytical and computational ways to measure, model, predict and visualize the underlying meaningful interactions and patterns. If you are interested in my researches, please visit Research and Publication.
Before I came to Pittsburgh, I worked with Dr. Hernan Makse in Complex Networks and Soft Matter Lab at City College of New York from 2015 to 2016. Prior to that, I obtained my master and bachelor degrees in Mathematics and Engineering from Beihang University, China.
- 03/28/2017 Our paper Efficient collective influence maximization in cascading processes with first-order transitions is published in Scientific Reports. We develop an efficient algorithm called CI-TM identifying influential spreaders to better promote information diffusion in networks.
- 10/26/2016 Our paper Collective Influence of Multiple Spreaders Evaluated by Tracing Real Information Flow in Large-Scale Social Networks is published in Scientific Reports. This is my research work in Levich Institute, CCNY in during 2015 to 2016. Thanks to my colleagues Dr. Pei, Dr. Morone and Dr. Makse.
- 09/01/2016 I launched a new homepage, the old one is here: Former Homepage.
- 05/15/2016 I moved to Pittsburgh from New York, and started my Ph.D studies at iSchool of Pitt.
- 06/15/2015 I moved to New York City and started my research work at Levich Institue of City College of New York (CCNY).
