Biography

I am currently a second-year Ph.D. student, majoring in Human-computer interaction (HCI), at Pennsylvania State University’s College of Information Sciences and Technology, where I am advised by Dr. Yubo Kou.

I am passionate about investigating questions regarding HCI, social media content moderation, and video content creator/influencer’s experiences under platform governance through mixed methodologies.

Recently, I work on projects of investigating how users, including (1) game players from online multiplayer games and (2) video content creators from social media platforms, interact with technologies and people, separately.
