I am an assistant professor in the department of Library and Information Science at the Rutgers School of Communication and Information, with a courtesy appointment in the Computer Science Department. Before coming to Rutgers I spent some time at Yahoo! Research Berkeley. I got my PhD at the Stanford Infolab.
My research focuses on social information and social media, with excursions to mobile and multimedia applications: what can we learn from the activity of people on social media services about the world, about society, and about people? How do we turn social media communication into reliable, understandable, organized "information"?
I am always looking for bright, motivated graduate and undergraduate students of various backgrounds (in particular LIS, CS and Comm) to work with. If you are excited about the future of social media, communication and information, do not hesitate to contact me.
