About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer and Information Science at Syracuse University, advised by Prof. Reza Zafarani. I closely work with Profs. Huan Liu and Kai Shu and was a research intern at the University of Southern California, mentored by Prof. Emilio Ferrara.

Research Interests

  • AI for social good: misinformation, hate speech, clickbait, and cherry-picking.
  • Computational social science: behavior and intent mining.
  • Natural language processing: text classification.
  • Machine learning: multimodal representation and fusion.

My recent attention has been paid to misinformation/disinformation; I study with its multimodalities, AI techniques, and social science foundations. To know more about my research, welcome to read “A Survey of Fake News: Fundamental Theories, Detection Methods, and Opportunities” in ACM Computing Surveys.
