Graduate Student, Sun Yat-sen University

I'm interested in social interactions, connections, and their outcomes. From the perspective
of social network, I use computational methods such as network analysis, text analysis, and
Agent-based Modeling to study sociological questions in the field of mobility, survey
methodology, and the sociology of knowledge. As a computational sociologist, I also
interested in the study of the state-of-the-art computational methods and techniques.
At Knowledge Lab, I participate in a project which attempted to use machine learning to
make simplicity-description and causality-prescription of individual-level data generated from
Agent-based Modeling.
I have been visiting the Knowledge Lab at the University of Chicago since Dec 2017. I'm a
doctoral student in the sociology department of Sun Yat-sen University, where I received my
B.A. and M.A. in Sociology.
