ABOUT ME

I am deeply interested in the lens people use to perceive the world and how people react with the perception. I believe the structure of social networks and unequal distribution of attributes (such as wealth, talents, prestige and so on) can form the perception which leads people's collective behaviors. This collective action could restructure their social environments and adjust their perception of the world. I am eager to understand the mechanisms with the help of the complex system and mathematical modeling based on the data analysis.
