I currently hold the position of Assistant Research Fellow (a.k.a. Research Assistant Professor) at the School of Journalism and Communication, Nanjing University (NJU), where I am a core member of the Computational Communication Collaboratory.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Communication in 2022 from the Web Mining Laboratory, founded and coordinated by the esteemed ICA Fellow Prof. Jonathan J. H. Zhu at the Department of Media and Communication, City University of Hong Kong (CityU). Throughout my graduate studies, I received comprehensive training from interdisciplinary scholars, including social scientists and network scientists, which equipped me with the skills and knowledge to become a proficient computational social scientist. My scholarly contributions have been recognized through the publication of peer-reviewed research articles in prestigious social science journals, such as American Psychologist, New Media & Society, Humanities and Social Sciences Communications, and Chinese Journal of Communication.
