a Human-Computer Interaction researcher.
I am a fifth year PhD student in Human Centered Design and Engineering at University of Washington.
I explore how people adapt and integrate various information and communication technologies into their daily lives and how the technologies could help them functioning as social beings. Particularly, I am interested in prosocial behavior, voluntary behavior intended to benefit other people or society as a whole by helping, sharing, donating or volunteering.
I work with Gary Hsieh in the Prosocial Computing Lab. I am also a member of the Design-Use-Build (DUB) group. Previously, I graduated from Seoul National University in South Korea, majoring in Communication for M.A., and English Language and Literature for B.A.
