This is Bowen Yu. I am a PhD student in GroupLens Research at the University of Minnesota. I am doing research in social computing area about online user behaviors and interactions in online communities, such as Wikipedia, MOOC, etc.

In the past two summers, I interned at IBM Research Center and Microsoft Research FUSE LABS, and did super cool projects with awesome people! In my spare time, I enjoy reading and workout. Basketball is my favorite sports!

If you are interested in my research or participating in my research projects, please feel free to reach out me at
