I graduated as a master in communication sciences in 2015 at University of Science and Technology (USTC) in China. I obtained a grant from Chinese Scholarship Council  (CSC). Currently, my research topic is to explore the effectiveness of emotional crisis responses in social media. I have been involved in projects using quantitative methods, such as experimental design, meta-analysis and sentiment analysis.
