I am an incoming Assistant Professor of Information Science at Cornell University, after finishing my Ph.D. at Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO) and Kellogg Center for Science of Science and Innovation (CSSI).

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 will be recruiting PhD student(s) (2022-2023 application cycle) and a Postdoc in Cornell Information Science. [More details]
