About Me

I'm Jie Cai (蔡杰). I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Ying Wu College of Computing at New Jersey Institute of Technology. I am supervised by Dr. Yvette Wohn and also work at the Social X Lab. I have been a TA for 5 semesters for 4 courses and have independently taught a course. Currently, I am working with Dr. Yvette Wohn as a RA on the NFS-funded project about content moderation on social media.

My primary area of focus is on human-computer interaction (HCI) with a particular interest in phenomena in novel and interactive social media, currently focusing on the live streaming communities. I applied mixed methods (survey, interview, observation, etc.) to understand users’ decision-making process and experience.

I am looking for academia opportunities starting in 2022. Hire me!
