Greetings! My name is Wenyuan Wang, a Ph.D. padawan at the School of Information and Library Science at UNC Chapel Hill. I received my Master in Information Science from University of Pittsburgh and Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.

My research interests lies between the limbo world of human and information. I’m particularly interested in how people structure information and internalize it as their knowledge structure, and how those structure would affect people’s capability of receiving updating or contradicting information. My current thesis theme is to look at literature search process and study how visualization system could enhance the search progress, and how people’s information structure is changing over time. My advisor at UNC SILS is David Gotz,

Several of my boarder area of interests including: machine learning and deep learning algorithms to solve data problem in a presentable way to increase human trustworthiness, visualization systems combating bias received from propaganda in social media, and information interaction theories and models.
