I am a design researcher in the department of industrial design at KAIST, Republic of Korea. I received BSc, MSc, and PhD in industrial design from KAIST.

My research interest is developing new design prototyping tools to support prospective designers. The approach of development lies in integrating scientific knowledge and practical design skills to achieve usable systems. The main objective of my research is to build well-finished prototyping systems to deploy to the public, and derive robust observations and implications from actual usage in the wild. To conduct my previous studies, I was trained as designer-researcher having convergent thinking and skills for visual design, interaction design, system development, and evaluative study.

I have developed several prototyping tools for design scenario (MiniStudio, SketchStudio) and mechanism design (M.Sketch) for my PhD period. Now I am extending my viewpoint to find valuable prototyping system in design practice and education.
