I am a postdoctoral research associate working with Colin Gray and Robin Adams in Purdue University. I received a Ph.D. degree in information and computer sciences from the Department of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine, a M.S. degree in computer science from Renmin University of China, and a B.A. degree in linguistics from Peking University. 

My research interests lie in HCI, CSCW, and social computing. I'm particularly interested in studying video game, online community, and social media with qualitative and quantitative methods. I can be reached at kou2(at)purdue(dot)edu.
