My name is Shi Yin.
I'm a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
I work in Electronic Visualization Laboratory.
My research interests include Visualization, Virtual Reality and Video Games.
Before coming to the U.S., I received my Bachelor's Degree in Information and Computation Science at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2011.
My largest interest lies in playing video games. I also play sports, watch movies, read books, and experience anything good in the world.

Since the end of 2013, my focus has turned to playing games on my new Xbox One, but I kept playing on PC too.
Games I am currently playing include Call of Duty Ghosts, NBA 2K15, and Watch Dogs.
I started to play video games when I was very young. We used DOS at that time. So I barely remember the names of those games I played.
I played a variety of games, from AAA titles to indie games.
I played different type of games, FPS, RPG, action, sports, strategy, etc.
I played games from both West and East.
Playing with real people is a totally different experience from playing alone. I started playing multiplayer in 2009, after I purchased Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 from overseas. It was also the first time I knew the great Steam. It changed my life.
After I came to the U.S, I played Battlefiled 3 until DOTA 2 came out.
My Chinese blog focuses on a variety of subjects, my thought in midnights, my translation of interesting stuff, my memo of little tricks in life, etc.
