About Me

 I am an associate professor at the Department of Information Management, Peking University.  I hold a PhD and a MLS from Maryland’s iSchool. My research focuses on information and knowledge organization,  information seeking and sensemaking, and user-centered design and evaluation. I am particularly interested in how people in knowledge environments seek for and use information for complex tasks, individually and collaboratively.

I joined the Department of Information Management at Peking University in 2011, and I am a member of the KVision Lab.
