Undergraduate Lab Associate

Winston Wu is a junior at Virginia Tech studying Biological Sciences. He joined the Virginia Tech Gaming and Media Research Lab during the summer of 2013 through Virginia Tech’s Scieneering Summer Research program, and continues to work with the lab as part of an undergraduate honors research project. While he hopes to attend medical school after graduation, Winston is an avid gamer with fighting game tournament aspirations. Winston’s experience with gaming communities has led to an interest into what within games causes common emotions between those playing.  He’s curious to learn about the social, personal, and behavioral effects of video games as a communication platform.
