I am an Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Communication at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). I am also the Associate Director of the Computational Social Science Laboratory at CUHK and an affiliated member at the Web Mining Laboratory at City University of Hong Kong. My research interests include:

I have published dozens of journal articles, many of which appeared in the foremost communication journals, such as Journal of Communication, Communication Research, Human Communication Research, Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, New Media & Society. I have also published in public health, information science, sociology, and other interdisciplinary journals. I am currently working on several interdisciplinary projects related to leaderless protests on social media and the consequences of political incivility.
