I am now a master student at National Taiwan University, where I obtained my bachelor degree in Geography. Currently, I work with Dr. Chiao-Ling Kuo at SGIS (Semantic Geographic Information Science) Lab from Academia Sinica. I was previously a BISP student at UC Berkeley, where I completed one-year virtual visiting on my senior year. My research interests lie in the intersection of human geography, information studies and science and technology studies, especially how data has connected the desire for regional development and fears for “violation”.
I spend most of my time exploring the possibility of multidisciplinary approaches in my future research area. I enjoy investigating the operation and configuration of human lives through quantitative methods (spatial analysis, statistics, machine learning), while I'm still passionate about capturing people's personal values, subtle affect, and ideologies through qualitative methods (interviews, ethnography, content analysis). I truly deem that novel technologies could help us better understand our living conditions, but I firmly believe that it will only happen if we conduct rigorous empirical work to analyze its consequences.
Outside of my student life, I’m an amateur graphic designer (without actual drawing skills though) and a screenwriter. Most of my relaxing moments are spent listening music with my friends, playing volleyball with my teammates, and cooking with my family.
