Passionate about the interplay of information systems, individuals, and online social networks, my main research areas include social recommender systems, information privacy in social media, and social network analytics in business contexts. My work has appeared in JAIS, MIS Quarterly Executives, ICIS, AMCIS, HICSS, among others.
Tightly connected with research, my teaching mainly focuses on business analytics and data management. As a strong believer of learning through doing, I always bring real life cases into classroom for students to discuss and solve. In the past few years, I have also taught system analysis and design, Java programming, and introduction to information systems. I was also in the committee to initiate and develop the Business Analytics program at Clemson University.
I am currently an Assistant Professor at Clemson University. I received his Ph.D. degree in Management Information Systems from the University of Georgia in 2013. I also earned a Bachelor degree (with the First Class Honors) in Finance and Information Systems from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2006.
