I am a PhD candidate of Industrial Engineering & Management Sciences (IEMS) at Northwestern University. I am also a researcher in residence at Kellogg Center for Science of Science and Innovation (CSSI) and Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO), where I am co-advised by Prof. Dashun Wang and Prof. Noshir Contractor.

As a computational social scientist, I apply and develop novel computational tools to understand how individual, social, and environmental processes independently and jointly promote (or inhibit) scientific progress and innovation achievements. My research has been published in journals including Science, Nature and Nature Human Behaviour and featured in media outlets such as Forbes, Scientific American, Washington Post, The Atlantic, Harvard Business Review and MIT Technology Review.

I am on the 2021-2022 academic job market and looking for tenure-track positions.
