Intro

I am a first year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), co-advised by Prof. Karrie Karahalios and Prof. Hari Sundaram. My current research focuses on collective decision making and decision making using data visualizations. During my Masters at UIUC, I worked with Prof. Aditya Parameswaran and Prof. Karrie Karahalios on the Dataspread Project. My general research interest invistigates how human interacts and make decisions. I am a full-stack web developer when not doing research. Read more about me here.

For my personal website, I publish Traditional Chinese blog posts to fill up the lack of translated resources in the Traditional Chinese community. For the projects that I worked on in the past I have them detailed in English here, take a look!

Also, this is my (not yet updated) resume. I'm looking for research oppertunities for Summer 2021!
