Hi, I'm Hyeok Kim (hjʌk). I'm a PhD student in Computer Science at Northwestern University. Currently, I work with Professor Jessica Hullman at MU Collective. Previously, I attended a master's program in Communcation at Seoul National University with colleagues from HCI+D Lab. My research intersts mainly include 📊 Data Visualization, 📱🖥 Across-Device Experience, 🛠 Visualizatin Tool Design & Automation, 📜 Narrative Visualization, and 🧙🏻♂Design Research. If you are interested in these areas too, please feel free to contact me for collaboration 🙆🏻♂!
Background I studied Linguistics for my undergraduate major, and computational and statistical linguistics for my student-designed minor, during which I focused on natural language processing. I practiced my programming and stats skills through data visualization, and I created several visualization works under the name of 'Mike Project.' Practicing visual data communication led me to various research areas in HCI, including system design, visualization grammar, and design research.
