Yuqian (Neil) Ni

I was previously a user researcher. Now I’m a PhD student dual major in Communication Science and Cognitive Science. I study emotion and cognition while people interacting with media technologies. My research involves psychophysiology measures and computational modeling methods.

I earned my B.A. in International Communications from the University of Nottingham, Ningbo, China and M.A. in Media Studies from Syracuse University. Now I’m studying at Indiana University Bloomington.

I love travelling (in the pre-Covid world). Exploring new places is always exciting. Recently I start to play tennis. I’m still learning but hopefully one day I can master this skill. I play video games occasionally. Real-time strategy and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) are my favorite gaming genres.
