Kaiwen Sun


I am a PhD student at the University of Michigan, School of Information advised by Florian Schaub and Chris Brooks. My research focuses on the intersection of children’s privacy and safety, smart home technologies, and human-computer interaction, particularly understanding children and parents’ perceptions and behaviors around privacy and safety in the context of smart home technologies. Prior to my doctoral study, I obtained my master degree in human computer interaction at the University of Michigan with an emphasis on UX research and design.
