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.
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.
I am very excited that our paper "Staged for Living": Negotiating Objects and their Values over a Porous Boundary
co-authored with my advisor has been accepted to CSCW'18. I will also participate in DC and serve as a SV. I am looking forward to having another wonderful experience at CSCW.
I am traveling to San Jose for attending to HCIC (Update: At HCIC, I won the New Experience Award for trying Smores for the first time!! )
I am thrilled to be serving for HRI 2019 as a Student Volunteer co-chair. I am grateful for this opportunity to provide this service to my academic community.
My first talk and SV experience at CHI :) Luckily, I could have chances to chat with several superstars whose work have inspired me so much.
I had a great time during HRI'18 conference: I gave two talks -- at Alternative HRI Methodology workshop and at the conference (full paper). I also had a great dinner with this year Pioneer HRI students as alumni of 2016. I also had a lot of fun as a student volunteer :)
I was invited to VEX U Winter Vortex Challenge - Regional Qualifier (to the World Championship ) to serve as a judge for the Excellence Award. It was so much fun and a great chance to meet robotics students from different institutions : )
Thrilled to announce that our paper "The Value of Empty Space for Design" has been accepted to CHI'18 !!!
Our paper on Futuristic Autobiographies (FABs) was also accepted to HRI'18 (my first method paper!)
