About me

I am always looking for motivated students interested in data science and business analytics research. Interested students are encouraged to send me your CVs via email for consideration.

I am currently an Assistant Professor in Information Systems at the City Univeristy of Hong Kong. I have a PhD in Information Science at the University of Iowa, under the supervision of Prof. Kang Zhao. My research interests are data science, text mining, social and business network analytics. Specifically, I am interested in data-driven anlaytics of teamwork and collaboration, hiring , and supply chain networks.


I like to write packages to facilitate my own research. Hope the following can be helpful to you as well!
