Hi, my name is Joonhyuk Chun and I'm a senior computer science major concentrating in AI and Media. I'm currently working on developing a proactive version of Amazon Alexa that works with smart watch for epilepsy patients. I'm very excited to be part of Everyday Computing Lab.
I am a PhD candidate in the Human-Centered Computing program at Georgia Tech. I am co-advised by Dr. Lauren Wilcox and Dr. Rosa Arriaga, and I am part of the Health Experience and Applications Lab (aka Hx Lab). My research focuses on designing collaborative health information technologies that scaffold patients' gradual participation in care. In my research, I apply quantitative and qualitative methods in various settings that span field interviews, patient portal analytics, surveys, diary studies, prototype design and deployment, and participatory design. With oncology, hematology, and rheumatology clinical collaborators at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, I am investigating how design methods can evolve to better engage adolescents and family caregivers throughout the process of tracking and co-designing rich representations of the patients’ daily illness experiences that have personal relevance to their management of treatment effects.
