Technology Support for Caregivers

I am exploring caregivers’ needs and how information technology could help their work
and improve their health and well-being, focusing on trust, communication, and social support around them.

I conducted in-depth interviews with family caregivers and paid caregivers for patients in South Korea, and with family caregivers and respite professional caregivers for older adults in the U.S. Currently, I am conducting research on caregivers of people who receive an animal therapy.

Alcohol Consumption among College Students

I am exploring how e-breathalyzers could complement existing programs and raise awareness about alcohol abuse and take action to prevent it.

I have conducted a user study with an e-breathalyzer and a smartphone app including surveys, interviews, and UX evaluation. Currently, I and my project team are designing and developing a prototype for a new app.
