I am what I ...



     Hi! I am Cici Ling (凌晨), I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering @ Boston University advised by Prof. Gianluca Stringhini.

My research aims to answer following questions through online communities:
- How are abusive attacks coordinated?
- What features of online communities have an impact on the coordination and spread of abusive behavior?
- What effective measurements could be developed to interfere with such coordination and the spread of abusive behavior?

     I received my master’s degree in Computer Science from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and my  bachelor’s degree in Art History from Tsinghua University.

     In addition to academics, I have been trained rigorously in piano and ballet for over 10 years. But I would rather describe myself as a vivid swimmer and a meme generator. ︎
