I recently finished my Ph.D in HCI/Design at Indiana University Bloomington where I was 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.

With Devansh Saxena, Erhardt Graeff, Shion Guha, Pedro Reynolds-Cuéllar, DawnWalker, Christoph Becker, and Kenneth R. Fleischmann, I am co-organizing the workshop "Collective Organizing and Social Responsibility at CSCW" at CSCW'20. Please stay tuned for the CfP coming up!
I passed my final dissertation defense! I will be joining the CS faculty in Human-Centered Computing at Aalborg University as an assistant professor this fall
CHI 2020 is happening virtually! I really enjoyed chairing the paper session on Sustainablily, Social Justice and Critical Computing :) Also stay tune to our workshop on "Understanding the Past, Present, and Future of Design Fictions”
I am thrilled to announce that I will co-organize the CHI 2020 workshop with these amazing researchers: Michael Muller, Jeffrey Bardzell, Norman Makoto Su, Eric P.S. Baumer, Casey Fiesler, Ann Light and Mark Blythe. The workshop title is "Understanding the Past, Present, and Future of Design Fictions”
I had a great time at CSCW: meeting up with Design Future scholars, academic mentors, and cohorts. Was very pleasure to chair the session on Economic Encounters and introduce fantastic works :)
I traveled San Diego for DIS'19 -- presented a design method paper, served as a session chair (Media in home), participated in DC and served as a SV. Met great mentors who shared their insightful tips for job market!
I will be at Glasgow for CHI'19 --- please come to DomestiCHI session (Click here to see fantastic papers) that I am session-chairing! (Carron 1, May8, 4:00PM). Another fun event : CHI Lites will be happening (9th, 7PM @The Lighthouse)
I had a wonderful time at HRI'19: co-charing SV and co-organizing a workshop! My position paper has beep accepted to "New Direction for the IoT" workshop at CHI'19. "I Beg to Differ: Soft Conflicts in Collaborative Design Using Design Fiction" has been accepted to DIS'19! I will serve as a SV and participate in the DC at DIS'19!! (Mentors: John Bowers, Wendy Ju)
I am pleased to be serving on the Program Committee for research papers of GROUP'20. I am looking forward to working with other PC members :-)
I am excited to be serving on the Program Committee for the Provocations and Works-in-Progress (PWiP) track of Designing Interactive Systems conference (DIS'19) as an associate chair
I am co-organizng the workshop "Robots for Social Good: Exploring Critical Design for HRI" for HRI'19 with Hee Rin Lee, Maartje de Graaf, Cristina Zaga, Patrícia Alves-oliveira, and Jim Young. I am excited to work with these fantastic researchers.
