Donghoon Shin

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

My research interests lie at the intersection of HCI, NLP, and social science. More specifically, I design and build systems that harness generative AI to lower communication burdens in various contexts, such as behavior change, science communication, and online ad hoc collaboration

Before joining UW, I did my undergrad in ECE and Information Science at Seoul National University, where I was honored to be supported by the Presidential Science Scholarship.

I am the recipient of the 2022 Korean Government Scholarship for Overseas Study and Honorable Mention Award at CHI 2020
