Hao Peng (彭浩)
Ph.D. Candidate @UMSI
I am a PhD candidate in School of Information at University of Michigan, where I am advised by Daniel Romero. My research is in computational social science, science of science, and social networks. I am interested in studying how social and organizational factors influence the evaluation and dissemination of science and innovation. My research goal is to improve the quality of science and amplify its societal impact.
