Hi, I am a 4th-year undergraduate student at Seoul National University, studying Electrical & Computer Engineering and Information Science & Culture. My undergraduate studies are supported by the Presidential Science Scholarship. Currently, I'm working as a research intern at CMU CoALA Lab advised by Kenneth Holstein, working on understanding human explanations for designing AI explanations.

My primary research area is Human-computer interaction (HCI), where I mainly focused on (i) designing systems for underrepresented groups, (ii) leveraging communication in such domains to empower tasks, and (iii) understanding how humans perceive automated algorithms explainability of such artifacts.

I am a Ph.D applicant for the Fall 2022 cycle!
