I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism & Communication at Peking University, China. My research orbits the application of media effects theories in the digital context, emerging media and democracy, and computational social science. Recently, I have been focusing on the relationships between social media messages and health perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors, as well as the network and intermedia agenda setting effects across legacy and social media. As of 2022, I have won many awards for my research and teaching, including six Top Paper Awards from AEJMC, among others. At Peking University, I serve as the vice director of the Master’s Program of Health Communication. I also teach various classes at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including New Media Sociology, Media Ethics and Law courses, and Special Topics in Emerging Communication Technology. Apart from research and teaching, I am also committed to a series of scholarly services.
