I'm an communication-based HCI researcher and an incoming Ph.D student in information at the University of Michigan. My research passion resides at the intersection of communication and human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), and human-robot interaction (HRI). Delving into these domains, my research aims to deeply understand how technology can be applied in complex social settings, assessing its impact on real-life social dynamics. My overarching goal is to establish effective and intuitive interactions between humans and technology, unveiling innovative ways in which technology can enrich human lives by influencing the formation, maintenance, and development of human-to-human relationships in social settings.
Prior to my PhD, I received a M.A in Communication at Seoul National University (advisors: Prof. Joonhwan Lee and Hajin Lim). I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts and Journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
