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.
I am a mixed-method HCI researcher with strong qualitative and quantitative research skills. My dissertation research focuses on improving inclusive design to support recent immigrants’ online networking, online trust, and engagement in consumer-to-consumer (C2C) e-commerce. In addition to my dissertation research, I have employed a wide range of research techniques to tackle research questions in domains such as email behavior, sharing economy, and on-body user interfaces.
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 friends to each other. I also love collecting hats. Let me know if you know where to find cool hats!
