I am a fourth-year PhD Candidate in I/O psychology. Before I came to UIUC, I attained my bachelor's degree in computer science/software engineering and master's degree in psychology, both in Fudan University, China. I primarily work on topics about leadership, specifically meta-analyses on linking leadership to workplace outcomes such as turnover intentions, and also linking personality to leadership effectiveness/emergence.
Aside from leadership, I am also enthusiastic about seeking out opportunities where techniques of computer science and programming can be applied to improvement on psychometric methods.
Outside of research, I also identify myself as a piano composer with passion in creativity, as well as a fan for old computer games such as HOMM III.
