Donghoon Shin

I am an HCI researcher and a Ph.D. student in Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington. I am co-advised by Profs. Gary Hsieh and Lucy Lu Wang

My research interest is at the intersection of HCI and AI / NLP. More specifically, I build systems that leverage generative AI models to lower communication burdens in various collaborative contexts, such as science communication, online ad hoc collaboration, and healthcare

I did my undergrad in ECE and Information Science at Seoul National University, where I was supported by the Presidential Science Scholarship. I am the 2022 Korean Government Scholar for Overseas Study
