As of a graduate from HCI, UX designer, wearable device developer, and Ph.D. Student in Digital Contents and Information Studies program, I am capable of conducting interdisciplinary research by playing multiple roles such as human-computer interaction researcher, user experience designer, developer, and data scientist. My research topic is an interface for Resistance Exercise, which requires a combined perspectives from both computational and design research practices. I am interested in working as an user experience designer backed up by analytical thinking from social science and actual data handling techniques with computational thinking.
