I'm a PhD student in the Child and Adolescent Development program. My research interests are how children use a variety of interactive media (video chat, eBooks, etc.) in a learning context and how we can support their effective learning with media. I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies at Seoul National University and worked as a lead teacher at a daycare center in Seoul.
