I am currently a Data Scientist at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
I work with Professor Hamsa Bastani, Professor Osbert Bastani, and Professor Dean Knox at the Department of Operations, Information, and Decisions and the Department of Computer and Information Science on researching and developing algorithmic solutions to complex and high-stake real-world problems.
I have been focusing on improving and expanding social scientists' toolkits to conduct text analyses. My collaborators and I propose Transformer Encoder for Social Science (TESS), a pretrained deep neural network encoder that shows superior performance on social science text processing tasks.
I received my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University. My dissertation puts forward an alternative theoretical framework emphasizing how low asset mobility helps foreign firms gain government support. Before coming to Princeton, I obtained an M.A. from Duke University and a B.A. from Fudan University, China.
