I am a PhD candidate at the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, working to discover the intellectual structure and the social community of the field. I am funded by UCL ORS (Overseas Research Scholarships) and my research interests lie primarily in citation network analysis and social network analysis, particularly, in Digital Humanities. Previously, I was awarded an MSc in Digital Humanities with Distinction by UCL, and my dissertation won the Stephen Robertson Prize for the best dissertation.
Currently, I am working at the Victoria and Albert Museum as a data standard editor, doing a research project on Chinese iconography, and constructing thesaurus to discover the relations between controlled vocabularies and the iconographic images.
Also, I’m working actively as a research assistant at UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities, and I have taken part in various research projects. I’m working on the Hidden Histories of Computing in the Humanities project to explore the gender publication pattern among DH authors. I have worked for the Connected Curriculum project to develop diversified reading lists. I have been involved in website design and construction for projects, such as Black Legend and Bridge to China.
Besides, I am a teaching assistant at UCL DIS, helping with different postgraduate modules, for instances, Internet Technology, XML, Digitisation, Server Programming, and Electronic Publishing. I am also a language editor for the journal Open Information Science.
