He has designed, developed, and evaluated methods and applications to support users in multiple domains: health, social media, sharing economy, and education. His recent research has focused on the following three areas:

  • Data-driven Design: supporting multiple stakeholders with special needs by creating tools through data-driven approaches

    • Smartphone app leveraging food images to support older adults with diabetes (Doctoral research)

    • Social network analysis of visually impaired people on video-based social media platforms

    • Data-driven personas for creating mHealth technology to support North Korean defectors with depression
