Xiaoyu is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Information Studies. His research interests cover three aspects, namely, user information behavior (action), user-generated content (outcome), and user cyberpsychology (underlying mechanism), particularly in the context of social media. His Ph.D. research focuses on a particular group of online influencers who create and share knowledge-intensive content on online platforms (viz., Knowledge Wanghong in China). This research is being jointly supervised by Dr. Alton Y. K. Chua and Dr. L.G. Pee.
