I am currently studying interpersonal consent on social platforms.
My general interests lie in human-computer interaction (HCI) and social computing.
I'm especially passionate about building social computing systems that can empower vulnerable population. I wrote briefly more about my resarch here.

I'm a Ph.D. student at University of Michigan School of Information, advised by Eric Gilbert. :)





Non-consensual Images/Videos on Social Media and Online Consent ( workshop paper @ CHI 2019 )
Non-consensual images/videos are a huge problem on the Internet, including social media.
This workshop paper stemmed from my interest on the problem of creepshots (불법촬영, "몰카") in South Korea.

Catching Russian trolls on Twitter using ML
We've been trying to find suspected Russian trolls on Twitter with machine learning: We think they're out there.
This is my first research project as a PhD student and the motivation for me was to help the U.S. election.

Content dispute resolution on Wikipedia ( full paper @ CSCW 2018 )
Request for Comment (RfC) is a system within Wikipedia for inviting new inputs to help resolve an ongoing content dispute.
We researched on preventing stale RfCs by building models to predict RfCs' outcomes.

Customized blocks in MIT App Inventor
I implemented a new feature called “user-defined blocks (customizable blocks)” into MIT App Inventor, an open source web platform that lets users build their own Android Apps quickly by using blocks-based programming.
I became interested into the system-building aspect of HCI through this project.

3D Printing Assisted Fabrication of Soft Robotic Hand with Embedded Soft Electronic Circuits
We developed 3D printing based soft robotic hands with stand-alone actuation and control system. I also contributed to the lab by independently implementing the software interface for precision 3D printing for advanced soft materials.
