Hello there ︎ My name is Seonghee Lee ( 이승희 ) .
I am a researcher interested in helping computers understand implicit and nuanced human communicaiton to create technology that can work in support of humans. I am interested in implict interaction with autonomous vehicles and creating recommendation systems that can empower humans and developing novel interaction methods for increasing AI literacy.
Here’s a sketch on my research interests
I am also passionate about creative design for tech. I have a background in HCI and HRI on Autonomous Vehicle Interaction Research and Interactive Data Visualizations.
More Personal ...
I am from both Korea and the US. I lived in the US for 5 years as a child, visiting the library everyday and coming home to make creative make-believe worlds with my sister. I had very specific dreams as a child --- ballet shoe designer, stem-cell resarcher, biological landscape architect, international policy maker ...etc. I was interested in work that was creative yet logical and often did meticulous research on a topic that sparked my interest. I spent middle and high school in Korea but always dreamed of coming back to the US because of my happy memories there as a child playing make-believe in the backyard of my house. Luckliy I was able to and now am just about to graduate from Cornell, as a major in Information Science with a concentration in Data Science & Interactive Technology. I hope to become a researcher/developer in helping AI learn ways of interacting and predicting human behavior and an interaction designer in developing novel methods of interaction for increasing AI literacy.
Things I love
* Yoga, Pilates, & Meditation - these are strong foundations of my mental health
* My family, friends, and dog Teddy
* Well documented logical & creative design explanations/ blueprints ..etc
* Interactive Data Visualizations
* Art Museums - I love interperting what art means
* Coding... as frusterating as it is, I love the instant gratification when something FINALLY! works ︎
* Nature - Isn’t it fascinating how a leaf can be naturally shaped that way?
As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions ︎
