ABOUT ME

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Information Science at School of Communication and Information, Rutgers University. My major research interests include Interactive Information Retrieval, Information Seeking, and Human Computer Interaction. My recent studies focus on (1) characterizing the interaction between information seeking intentions, users' expectations and search behavior at different stages of complex work and search tasks; (2) evaluating search system supports and recommendations with users at different task stages. My advisor is Dr. Chirag Shah, and I am affiliated with the InfoSeeking Lab.

I received my M.S. in Information Science from Peking University (2016) and my double B.S. in Library Science and Finance from Nankai University (2014). My recent CV is available here.
