I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University. My research examines the connections between emerging technologies and cultural changes, with a focus on the socially constituted ways in which people encounter and engage the mediated environment. I employ mixed methodologies, and draw from media studies, science and technology studies, cultural sociology, and network science. My current projects explore these areas: (1) data analytics and algorithmic cultures, (2) media use and media (infra)structures, and (3) information technology and post-reform China.

I studied Media, Technology and Society at Northwestern University and graduated with a PhD in 2014. I received my Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) in Communication from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), and my B.A. in Journalism and Communication with a Minor in Applied Computer Science from Tsinghua University, China. Before joining NYU, I taught at CUHK's School of Journalism & Communication.
