I am Ph.D. candidate at Institute for Data, Systems and Society (IDSS) at MIT, advised by Prof. Ali Jadbabaie. I am also affiliated with LIDS (Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems). Prior to MIT, I obtained my B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University (NTU).

My research focus is on decision making of individuals interacting on social media platforms in an environment with real and false information coexisting. I investigate how these individual behaviors can evolve to large-scale social phenomena such as information sharing cascades. I establish and analyze models using tools and techniques from game theory, optimization, microeconomics, and probability theory to gain insights into economic decision making, based on which moderation principles can be made.

I am actively looking for a research position in academics or industry.
