I am an Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Communication at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). I am also a theme co-leader at 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.
