Seoyoung Kim

About Me

I am Seoyoung Kim [suh-young-kim], a Ph.D. candidate in School of Computing at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). I am in KIXLAB and working with Juho Kim. My research interests lie in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Human-AI Interaction(HAI), inclusive design, digital inclusion, adaptive systems, and underrepresented users. You can reach me at

Curriculum Vitae

I'm interested in understanding how non-typical users use or perceive AI systems to enable various user groups to better use technologies. Based on these understandings, I aim to build inclusive systems.

I'm currently looking for PostDoc opportunities. Please let me know if you want to work together!
