I am a PhD student in Department of Sociology, Princeton University.
I obtained my B. S. in Computer Science and B. A. in History, 2013, from Peking University, China.

My research interest include social networks, computational social science, quantitative methods, social movements. One of my primay focus is to explore how network structure influence various segregation phenomena. I am also interested in exploring innovative ways to use big data for social research to address problems that can be hardly done with traditional social science data.
