I’m Yoojung Kim, a UX/HCI researcher
Since March 1, 2020, I work for Samsung SDS as a senior engineer. I earned my Ph.D. in the Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology (GSCST) from Seoul National University (SNU), studying under Joongseek Lee.
I am interested in how certain users interact with data streams. I aim to identify the gap between their behaviors and perceptions by investigating how users deal with various data streams. This perspective covers other topics by defining the different types of users and contexts. I employ a deep analysis approach in which I focus on specific users based on both quantitative log data left by users and qualitative data which include interviews and observation results.
Mostly, my past research experiences lie in the healthcare domain. I have studied how doctors and patients handle heterogeneous data that includes activity, meal, sleep, and weight data in the medical context. I conducted in-depth interviews with patients and observed medical consultations over three years, cumulating to designing a health data logging application and an interface for clinicians.
I earned my M.Eng. degree in the Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology (GSCST) from Seoul National University and B.A. degree in College of Humanities and College of Social Science from Seoul National University.
