My desire to be a scholar is motivated by my curiosity and enthusiasm for social science. My current research interests converge at the intersection of health communication, persuasion, and new media, especially the use of social networking sites in health promotion. I am profoundly interested in these areas and believe that my work could provide valuable insights for current health communication research in this digital era.

        My work has been published in peer-reviewed and SSCI-indexed journals, including Health Communication, Communication Research, Cyberpsychology, Behavior, & Social Networking, AIDS Care, and Chinese Journal of Communication
