Donghoon Shin

I am an HCI researcher and a first year Ph.D. student in Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington, advised by Gary Hsieh

My research mainly explores the potential of AI / NLP in social computing and translational science. Specifically, I build and evaluate systems that (i) enhance online collaborations by empowering social dynamics with AI and (ii) help lay people (e.g., designers) easily draw academic insights from research articles into their design activities

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
