I am a sixth year PhD student working under Dr. Wai-Tat Fu and Dr. Karrie G. Karahalios in Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am primarily interested in human computer interaction, crowd computing, interactive user interface design and behavirol and social science.

My primary research interest is in understanding the impact of crowdfunding communities from various socio-economic perspective. I build systems for crowdfunding campaign creators by leveraging persuasive factors from advertising theories' that can persuade backers to donate. I also study the impact of socially stigmatized crowdfunding campaigns in changing people's social opinion on controversial topics. In addition to this, I design and build interactive navigation interfaces to better assist spatial learning by drawing theories on spatial cognition.
