Bio

Hi! I am moving this page to a different space as I have graduated from Stanford. Please email me if you would like to know about my latest work.

I am now a postdoc at Department of Pediatrics, Stanford Medicine.

My research utilizes naturally-occurring, content-rich data to investigate digital media effects at multiple timescales and across various information domains, answering questions such as: Does consumption of negative content lead to the selection of positive content in between smartphone use sessions? What is the diurnal pattern of factual content consumption on personal digital devices? How do digital media users balance their choices about producing vs. consuming content?

I am a member of the Human Screenome Project, where I manage our cloud computing infrastructure and develop tools for information extraction, machine learning, and statistical modeling. I was a Stanford Computational Social Science Fellow in 2017 - 2018. I was also a Dissertation Fellow for the Stanford Institute for Research in the Social Sciences in 2019, and a recipient of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation Magic Grant.

Outside of my professional life domain, I enjoy reading about history, philosophy, and literature. Some of my favorite topics include Taoist thoughts and the Book of Changes.
