Research
My research interests are primarily focused on examining higher-order thinking process. Especially, I have been interested in cognitive process of critical thinking and the relationship between social contexts and critical thinking. In this stream of research, I am now exploring 1) the effect of criticism on information transmission in social media, and 2) on generating creative ideas in crowdsourcing.
