Yimin Chen (He/Him) is a PhD Candidate in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies working on a thesis that seeks to disentangle some of the conceptual mess that surrounds internet trolling. He studied Biology and English Literature at UBC before coming to Western for his MLIS and PhD. When avoiding work on his dissertation, Yimin also spends time conducting research into fake news and digital literacies and helps host and produce GradCast, a radio/podcast show that features graduate student research at Western. Yimin has taught and TAed undergraduates in the MIT program as well as graduate students in Library and Information Science at FIMS and firmly believes that good academic writing doesn't have to be boring.
