I study, design, and build systems for better human-data interaction in diverse settings such as healthcare, journalism, and culture. I am broadly interested in the social implications of data and artificial intelligence. Before joining KAIST in 2021, I worked as an assistant professor at Seoul National University (2018-2021) and UNIST (2015-2018). I received my Ph.D. in Human-Centered Computing from Georgia Tech in 2015 and B.S. in Industrial Design from KAIST in 2009.

I manage DxD (data, interaction, design) lab where we explore design from, with, and by data to develop technologies that are more sensitive to human concerns and behaviors. We work to provide novel conceptual and computational tools and methodologies for designing (accessible) human-centered AI experiences, especially for individuals with special needs.
