I'm a final year undergrad studying at Seoul National University, majoring in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Information Science & Culture Studies. Currently, I'm working as a research intern at CMU CoALA Lab advised by Kenneth Holstein, focusing on understanding human visual explanations to guide the design of AI explanations.

My primary research area is Human-computer interaction (HCI), where I dealt with various research topics that span the field of CSCW, Accessibility, and Healthcare. Specifically, I mainly focused on designing chatbots and mobile applications that leverage communication and works. Recently, I'm also interested in understanding how human perceives AI algorithms and understanding and supporting users in online learning platforms.

+ I am a Ph.D applicant for the Fall 2022 cycle! Here's my curriculum vitae
