Yi Hou is a graduate student in Civil Engineering at Mizzou. He is researching traffic safety and driver behavior for his Ph.D. dissertation. Three years ago, Yi was married back in his hometown in China. His new bride, Rui Ren, joined him at Mizzou as a graduate student in the French department. I would often see them eat their lunch together outside the engineering research labs. You’d be hard pressed to find a more charming young couple.
