Eunmi (Ellie) Jeong

Ph.D. student in the Information School at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

My research interests center on user behavior and motivation in online communities. My work involves investigating underlying causes that drive users to behave a certain way and building design frameworks for user-centered information systems based on a better understanding of users.
