About Me

This summer I am internining at Etsy in Brooklyn with Dr. Liangjie Hong.

I am currently a PhD student at Arizona State University. My advisor is Professor Huan Liu. Before I joined ASU, I obtained my master's degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2014 and my bachelor's degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecom in 2011.

TweetTracker 2.0

I led the efforts to revamp TweetTracker with Shobhit Sharma (front-end development), Ashutosh Bhadke (back-end development) and Kunal Bansal (system integration).

Geospatial Tweet Data Visualization

I led a capstone project to build an interactive explorer of tweets with Corey Mcneish and Christina Wilmot (data analysis), Raquel Lippincott and Spencer Graf (data visualization), Matthew Gross and Philip Terzic (data crawling).
