I am Taewook [teug] Kim, a first year Ph.D. student in CS and Communication Studies at Northwestern University. I work with Matt Kay.

I am interested in supporting caregivers’ mental health. I design, build, and evaluate systems. Broadly, I enjoy leveraging NLP/ML tools to help people share affirmative emotions.
