Jilin Chen's Face


I got my PhD in Computer Science from GroupLens Research, University of Minnesota in Sep 2011. During my PhD I built systems that help people find useful information in social media by inferring interest, influence, and social relationships from "digital traces" that people left online. I also analyzed the dynamics of online groups in social media using social psychology theories.

I now work at IBM Research.

Check out my resume for more details about me, and visit the research project page for some of my PhD projects (with pictures and papers).

Before coming to U.S. for my study I spent most of my life in my home city Beijing, China. In my leisure time I enjoy reading history books and playing video games.
