I have a background in Industrial Design and Digital Media Design for Education. My current research interests are in long distance relationships and parent-child relationships under Korean perspectives within HCI.
Through experience-centred design approach, I look closely at the lived experiences of Korean international students in terms of their series of tough moments, relationships with parents over long distances, their use of technology. I am then exploring how to reflect their private values into the design of technology.
My previous work has looked at the issue of social isolation and the value of digital media to support human relationships. I designed a web-based application to build a social bridge between the older and the younger citizens and support their emotional connections. My preferred ways to refresh myself are drawing, crafting, and travelling.
