I am a Computer Science PhD student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am part of the People and Robots Laboratory and am grateful to be advised by Professor Bilge Mutlu. My interests are Human-Robot Interaction and End-User Programming. More specifically, my interests lie in building interactive robot programming systems that utilize natural language prompts.

I studied Artificial Intelligence and Statistics at Sungkyunkwan University, Seoul, South Korea for my undergraduate degrees. Professor Hayeon Song, affiliated with the Human-AI Interaction Laboratory led me to the field of Computer-Mediated Communication, and Human-Computer/Human-Robot Interaction. Our work on social media and social support during COVID-19 was accepted to *the 72nd Annual International Communication Association Conference*, held in France.

Here is my most recent CV (updated: Mar 2024).
