Biography

I aspire to build novel social computing systems that can have a broad and positive impact. My general interests lie in human-computer interaction (HCI) and social computing. Before coming to UMSI, I was an undergraduate in Korea University, double majoring Business and Computer Science. I have also studied and engaged in three research projects at MIT EECS (course 6) by applying through undergraduate special student program from fall 2016 to spring 2017. Due to my interdisciplinary background of studying Computer Science and Business together, I found it natural for me to feel passion in research that use computation while also considering the social context.
