I am currently a Ph.D. candidate (expected graduation date Jan. 2022) at the School of Information, The University of Texas at Austin, advised by Dr. Jacek Gwizdka. My research interests focus on investigating the intersection between eHealth literacy and online information search behaviors. I am also interested in research topics related to online information seeking, consumer health information behavior, trust, and transparency in online health communities, and applying usability testing to verify the design of digital technologies.
I earned a B.S. in Psychology from National Chung Cheng University and received a M.S. in Industrial Engineering at National Tsing Hua University. After graduation, I worked as a research assistant in the Department of Industrial Design at Chang Gung University with Dr. Tsai-Hsuan Tsai. Dr. Tsai and I collaborated on various research projects and published several peer-reviewed articles in Q1 SCI\SSCI journals: Computers in Human Behavior and PLOS ONE.
