Curriculum Vitae [PDF]

I am a third year PhD student in Technology and Social Behavior at Northwestern University, a program combining Computer Science and Communication Studies.
I work with Dr. Haoqi Zhang and Dr. Liz Gerber in the Delta Lab.

I study 1) how to leverage people's existing routes to crowdsource physical tasks and 2) how delays influence trust in crowdfunding communities. My research draws from the fields of human-computer interaction, human-centered design, crowdsourcing, and social computing.

I received my M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and B.Eng. degree in Computer Science from Tsinghua University.
