Hello! I am Joey, or officially Chiao-Yin Hsiao / 蕭喬尹. I am a User Experience & Human-Computer Interaction researcher specialized in mixed-methods and longitudinal field studies. I am passionate about understanding how technologies influence user trust and community development. My PhD research focused on recent immigrants' use of local P2P e-commerce platforms, and contributed design recommendations that can largely improve this population's trust and commitment to their local communities and also the platforms.
I received my PhD degree from the School of Information, University of Michigan (UMSI) in 2021. During the years of pursuing my PhD, I was a member of the Social Innovations Group (SIG), advised by Prof. Tawanna Dillahunt. 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. Jane Yung-Jen Hsu.
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!
