I am a PhD candidate in the department of politics at Princeton University (Fall 2016 to now). Previously, I obtained a M.A. in quantitative methods in social science from Columbia University, and a B.A. in political science from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.


Research Interests:

I am interested in missing data imputation, text analysis and social media study. Currently, I have ongoing projects that try to tackle with missing not at random problem, model honesty after imputation, LDA topic model specification, Youtube polarization experiment, and how extreme-right channels grow on Youtube.
