I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Information Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, advised by Stephen Voida. I will be supported by a Meta PhD Research Fellowship in 2022. I am a member of the Too Much Information Lab.

My primary research falls in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI) and computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), with a focus on personal wellness and sustainability concerns. My research program investigates the role of digital technologies in our everyday lives for the art of living in an uncertain world by drawing methods and theories from design and social sciences and deploying humanistic epistemological commitments. 

Currently, I am working on two projects by tackling these research questions:

How can we design technology to foster critical reflection? What kind of technological interventions do we need to help people explore other ways of seeing their experiences? In what way do technologies afford user agency by letting people make sense of their experiences? (Related projects: Personal Informatics and Reflection, Critical reflection in food practice for sustainability)

What new technologies are needed for supporting remote workers’ productivity and well-being in the context of working from home? (Related projects: Time Machine and Temporality, Topophilia, placemaking, and Boundary work in Work-from-home)

Previously, I earned an MA in Human-computer interaction in the Department of Media and Information at Michigan State University, advised by Emilee Rader. I received a Bachelor degree in Communication from Yonsei University.

My lab (TMI Lab) is looking for an undergraduate/graduate research assistant now. Please check out the job description, if you are interested in it!
