Hi! thanks for checking out my website. I'm a designer with 7+ years of experience. I recently earned my master's degree in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design where I studied various emerging technologies from Physical Computing, Data Visualization, Web Development, Creative Coding, VR/AR, Artificial Intelligence, etc. Before, I double-majored in Visual Media Design and Public Relations & Advertising in Seoul.

I'm particularly interested in visualizing complex ideas, mapping data to find hidden insights, connecting physical data to digital, how to utilize big data in new ways as a designer.I'm currently working at Enigma, which is a data management company.

 
 

Check out my ongoing activities and research on emerging technologies, and the future of data + UX + business. Let's stay in touch!

 
 

A Vision for Smarter Dashboard UI

I'm attending fitness classes at Chelsea Piers Sports center since last year and joined a new class called Breakaway 101 which was a thought breaking workout experience for me because this is what I have wanted to design during my master's studies.

The dynamic color changing UI along with each bike's signal light and room LED lights by tracking RPM data depending on the users' different workout levels, speeds and consistency while cycling fascinated me a lot while experiencing the cycling workout.

I eager to design a real-time dashboard UI that reacts to user's activity in real time while it's interface is visually enhancing the communication and awarness between users and their activities at the moments. I have always wanted to design the interaction between the users and their data which gives simple, powerful real-time workout motivation through visual communication.
