I am Yixue Wang (汪一雪), a Ph.D. student in the Technology and Social Behavior program at Northwestern University, a joint program in Computer Science and Communication.
As a researcher in computational journalism and social science, I analyze human behavioral data as a means to enhance diversity, maintain civility and eliminate biases. I am specifically interested in promoting online deliberation, supporting journalistic sourcing practices via online comments, and designing article-level news personalizations. I am advised by Nicholas Diakopoulos in the Computational Journalism Lab.
I worked as a data engineer at HaystaqDNA before I joined Northwestern, focusing on building machine learning models and data process pipelines. I earned my M.S. in Urban Informatics from NYU and my B.Eng. (Hons) in Telecommunications Engineering from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications and Queen Mary, University of London.
