Yuanyuan is a visiting graduate student from University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where she is a member of the Bodies in Motion Lab working with her advisor Helena Mentis.

Her interests lie in biomedical informatics, human-computer interaction (HCI) and computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW). Her current research focuses on the team knowledge sharing in the operating rooms.

Yuanyuan is originally from Beijing, China. She graduated with a M.B.B.S. at Tianjin Medical University in China in 2011, and a M.S. in Health Informatics at University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in 2013. She enjoys reading non-fictions and traveling in her spare time.
