About me

Hyunggu Jung is a PhD candidate of Biomedical and Health Informatics, under the supervision of Prof. Fredric M. Wolf, at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He received his B.S. in Computer Science and a minor in Business Economics from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 2008, and his M.Math. degree from the University of Waterloo in 2010, under the supervision of Prof. Robin Cohen, and his M.S. degree with a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) specialization from Stanford University in 2012. He is a recipient of the Korean Government Scholarship and Mogam Science Scholarship.


His research has focused on the following two areas:

  • Supporting individuals with special needs

    • Older adults with type 2 diabetes for personal health management (Doctoral research)

    • Members for smart, context-aware, peer-to-peer service and transaction matching in Timebank communities with Dr. Victoria Bellotti (PARC)

    • Advanced editors for potential collaboration in Wikipedia with Prof. Mark Zachry (HCDE)

    • Clinical researchers for redesigning a data-profiling tool (i.e., FindIT 1.0, FindIT 2.0) with Prof. Kari Stephens (ITHS)

    • Lecturers for assessing attention of audiences during presentations with Dr. Shamsi Iqbal (MSR)

  • Improving decision-making process through the development of theoretical/technical frameworks

    • Novel Markov chain model that predicts head and neck squamous cell carinoma dissemination with Prof. Mark Whipple (BHI)

    • Automated reasoning architecture, GuideLine INteraction Detection Architecture (GLINDA), that generates recommendations from multiple clinical guidelines with Prof. Mark Musen (Stanford BMIR)

    • Framework for reasoning about benefits and costs of interaction with users in real-time decision making environments with Prof. Robin Cohen (Waterloo AI Group)
