What do you do best?

In order for research efforts to be meaningful, researchers need to locate the right data and analyze it with the right empirical methods. In addition to these non-trivial tasks, more importantly, one would need to be able to ask the right set of questions that can be addressed by the data. While it is challenging to deliver high quality research, I have developed a keen sense of studying topical research questions using disparate datasets and econometric modeling. Based on what I have learned in my research, I translate my findings into comprehensible formats that can be readily understood by colleagues and students.

What makes you the best?

Driven to provide answers to social issues, I take a lead in starting research that have not been examined by colleagues in my field. In the process of doing so, I set high standards for myself in every step of my work in order to arrive at research outputs that are both credible and robust. I also pay careful attention in the process of delivering my findings to others, such that my work can be understood and applied by interested stakeholders.

How will you stay the best?

Dare to be different and dare to fail. Novel work can only come if I continue to think out of the box. This often involves attempting obscure ideas that can lead to failures. Yet, with every failure, I learn what works and what doesn't, which in turn allows me to fine tune and generate better ideas and solutions. On top of this, I believe in doing good for others and using my work as a service to society. Using this as an overarching principle to guide my work, I am able to deliver research that has tangible value to people and communities.

What are your aspirations: business & personal?

Personal: I would want to be a blessing to my family and friends.

Business: I would want people and businesses to recognize the impact that Internet technologies have on our lives and society.

What fascinates you?

I am intrigued by how people can utilize the same online technology in many different ways, ranging from the good to the bad.

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another
