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 infrastructures, and (3) information technology, politics, and post-reform China.
I received my Ph.D. from the Media, Technology and Society program in Northwestern University's School of Communication, my Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) in Communication from 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.
