I was born in Hsinchu, Taiwan and I went to National Hsinchu Girls' Senior High School for an engineering education. I left Hsinchu to pursue a Bachelor degree in Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Central University (NCU). While studying at NCU, I also worked as a freelance model, and was offered a modeling contract. However, due to my determination to pursue further study in the United States, I turned down the contract and began my Ph.D. studies in 2012.
I have gained experience teaching the following courses:
I recorded and uploaded one semester of my lectures on this YouTube channel. Feel free to browse and subscribe!
My research interests lie in the fields of Data Mining (Text Mining, in particular), Natural Language Processing, and Social Network Analysis. I have combined my knowledge in these fields with my outside interests to form my current research topics, thanks to my wonderful adviser, mentors, and collaborators.
I am a member of the iPDA research group, supervised by Dr. Wang-Chien Lee. I am also in charge of the Big Data team in iPDA, working on projects through Big Data approaches.
I joined Trendalytics Innovation Labs Inc as a research intern in summer 2015. I am joining Visa Research as a Research Scientist intern in spring 2018.
I have worked as a freelance model in Taiwan since 2009. My work mainly involves photoshoots for fashion design, online shopping and creative collaboration with photographers.
