I am an assistant professor in the School of Modeling, Simulation and Training at the University of Central Florida. I am also a core faculty member in the Cyber Security and Privacy Cluster, and a joint faculty member in the Department of Computer Science.
I received my Ph.D. degree in information and computer sciences from the Department of Informatics at University of California, Irvine in June, 2019, under the supervision of Dr. Alfred Kobsa. Before that, I received my M.S. from iSchool at Syracuse University, and B.B.A. from International Business School at Beijing Foreign Studies University.
My research is about privacy and human–computer interaction (HCI). I am interested in understanding users’ privacy attitudes and behaviors in their interaction with technologies, and exploring how to design better systems to support users' privacy management. I apply both qualitative and quantitative methods in my research, ranging from structural equation modeling, factor analysis, regression, longitudinal analysis, causal inference, machine learning, to grounded theory and thematic analysis.
