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

I build systems to alleviate the impact of abusive language on people and to encourage people to share positive emotions such as love and empathy. I design systems, and study people. Recently, I explore how to design systems for supporting the mental health of caregivers of a person with dementia.
