Research by Topic

My research focuses on social impacts of new media. Specifically, using big data studies, my past and on-going work aims at understanding: (1) how new media platforms induce social biases online; (2) how policies and strategies can help mitigate social biases, and (3) how individual-level motives online can lead to unintended consequences when aggregated. To build knowledge in these three areas, I utilize a wide variety of quantitative methods (e.g., quasi-experiment, multilevel model, survival analysis, topic modeling, and agent-based modeling), while grounding my research in theory. Below are my peer-reviewed publications by topics:
