Biography

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 developing micro-foundations of information processing and decision making of individuals interacting on social media platforms, and investigate how these individual behaviors can evolve to large-scale social phenomena such as information 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.
