This is Soomin Kim😎

I'm a PhD student in the hci+d lab. at Seoul National University advised by Joonhwan Lee.

I design interactive systems to facilitate better communication and collaboration among users. I have conducted a study to improve a current web survey system by using a chatbot (CHI 2019 full paper). Recently, we designed the chatbot, Poki, which manages and facilitates group chat discussion (CHI 2020 full paper, CSCW 2021 full paper).

More broadly, my research interests are in the areas of Human-AI Interaction, conversational agents/chatbots, and social computing/data analysis. I also love to make the new services and systems and to analyze user behavior with a data-driven approach.
