I am a Ph.D. student dual major in Communication Science and Cognitive Science. I earned my B.A. in International Communications from the University of Nottingham and M.A. in Media Studies from Syracuse University. Before coming to Bloomington, I was a user experience researcher in Shanghai.
Currently, I am interested in modeling appetitive and aversive motivation, especially in the context of video game play. I approach this topic using psychophysiological, neuroimaging, and computational tools.
