Exploring Creativity


I am a PhD student in Societal Computing at the Department of Computer Science in Carnegie Mellon University, supervised by Prof Kathleen Carley. My research interests are computational social sciences and social media analysis motivated by disinformation and misinformation in the online space. I received my Bachelors in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science of National University of Singapore, where I won the NUSS medal for Outstanding Achivement. My Final Year Project was on 3D Makeup Projection, supervised by Prof Terence Sim.
