Taewook Kim is a full time researcher, working with Dr. Juho Kim at KAIST Interaction Lab (KIXLAB). He will be joining Northwestern University this fall as a Ph.D. student in Technology and Social Behavior (TSB), a joint Ph.D. program in Computer Science and Communication Studies.

His research in human-computer interaction focuses on communication, conversation, and dialogue. Fundamentally, he probes the following research question – “How can we design technology to help people nicer to each other?” He pursues system-building research. He enjoys designing and implementing interactive systems that offload users’ cognitive and emotional burden in communication with computational techniques, either by paraphrasing the past content or recommending future actions.

He earned his M.Phil. from HKUST in 2020 and B.S. from Hanyang University in 2018, respectively.
