    I am doing research in the application aspect of big data analytics, with a particular focus on scholarly data mining. Specifically, my research endeavors to elucidate the process of knowledge diffusion (e.g., differences between knowledge diffusion of interdisciplinary and unidisciplinary publications), the analysis of scholarly networks and their variants (e.g., co-citation, bibliographic coupling, and some hybrid networks), and bibliometric indicators for research assessment (e.g., citation-based impact indicators). I aim to understand the social dimensions of the global scientific ecosystem by leveraging massive datasets, computational techniques, and social theories.
