Welcome!  

I am a HCI/ Design Ph.D.candidate studying at Indiana University Bloomington. I am advised by Professor Norman Makoto Su

 

My research interests include human–computer interaction (HCI), human-robot interaction (HRI), computer–supported cooperative work (CSCW), and science & technology studies (STS). I am interested in how values can and should be incorporated into the design of future technologies. Through my research, I hope to offer alternatives to human-centered designs that contribute to building our relationship with technologies in authentic ways.  My current fieldwork involves people who have adopted “alternative” lifestyles and values (e.g., minimalists and tiny house enthusiasts)

I received the B.A degree both in Integrated Studies of Culture (ISC) in Scranton Honors Program (SHP) and in Library and Information Science from the Ewha Womans University, Seoul, South Korea, and the M.S. degree in Information Science from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. At UNC, I worked on smart/ traditional 

health tracking technologies users with Professor Mohammad Hossein Jarrahi
