Hello! I am Joey, or officially Chiao-Yin Hsiao / 蕭喬尹. I am a Ph.D. candidate at the School of Information, University of Michigan (UMSI). I am now a member of the Social Innovations Group (SIG), advised by Prof. Tawanna Dillahunt.
My research interests are Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), and Social Computing. I am currently exploring how location-based social applications, such as people-nearby applications, hybrid community applications, and sharing economy applications, can support newcomers in adapting to a new environment.
I received a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from Dept. of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Taiwan University (NTU-CSIE), advised by Prof. Yung-Jen Hsu. Before pursuing my Ph.D., I worked as a research assistant at Intel-NTU Context Computing Center with Prof. Hao-Chuan Wang and Prof. Bing-Yu Chen.
I believe in the theory - strength of the weak ties, so I love to meet new friends and introduce a friend to another friend. I also love collecting hats. Let me know if you know where to find cool hats!
For more details, please check my CV.
