The harmonization between theoretical framework and data-driven approach, focusing on how the machine learning approach can measure meaningful categories. Research and Teaching Interests. My current research topically focuses on career mobility, social networks, and the online labor market but their innate motivation is to integrate ideas from economic sociology into OB/HR research. Carlson is a perfect academic accelerator for me as I can learn from great psychologists and economists, cultivating my interdisciplinary perspective on how we work and organize.

Some specific teaching topics that are relevant to my research projects are Social Capital in Workplaces and Digital Transformation in Workplaces. In addition, teaching Social Statistics for Business Management using R and Python can be another interesting lecture I can happily share with students.
