My research interests lie at the intersection of digital media, political communication, and computational social science. Using a mixed-methods approach, my ongoing research has two focal areas: 1) the integration of algorithmic decision-making and data analytics into politics and social life, and 2) the mechanism and consequence of political astroturfing and propaganda on digital platforms.

My publications can be found on Google scholar and ResearchGate.
