I am a researcher at the Computational Health Behavior & Decision Science at IBM Watson Research Center, specializing in user experience and health behavior research. My research uses empirical evidences on consumer health behavior to inform the design and re-design of technologies that aim to support and/or steer health behaviors.

My previous work on personal health information management and systems design, clinical health information systems, and online health communities were presented at American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (ACM SIGCHI), Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T), and iConference.

I hold a PhD in Library and Information Science from Rutgers University, with a Masters Degree in Technical Economics and a Bachelors Degree in Management Information Systems from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.
