👋 Hi! I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Human-computer interaction (HCI)/Human-centered design, at Pennsylvania State University’s College of Information Sciences and Technology, where I am advised by Dr. Yubo Kou in the Health and Play Lab.

I am passionate about studying content moderation and content creator/influencer’s experiences with creator moderation/governance (e.g., content rules, monetization, recommendation, content moderation mechanisms) through mixed methods.

Recently, I work on projects of investigating how (1) players from online multiplayer games and (2) video content creators from multiple platforms such as TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch and more, interact with technologies and people, separately.
