In this talk, I will present my recent research efforts in the fields of health informatics, human-computer interaction design, and artificial intelligence. During my PhD studies, my research has been focused on the early-stage development of innovative technologies that enable healthcare transformation from reactive and hospital-centered to preventive and person-centered. For the rest of the talk, I will focus on describing my approaches using design methods and mathematical models with Electronic Health Records (EHR) data for improving decision making. I will conclude with my future research directions, including the development of tools that leverage EHR data by reflecting the needs and barriers of multiple stakeholders (e.g., patients, health providers, and clinical researchers), and the development of mathematical models for predicting the spread of multiple types of cancers by integrating clinical data.



Hyunggu Jung is an assistant professor of Software Convergence at Kyung Hee University. He received his B.S., M.Math, and M.S. from KAIST, the University of Waterloo, and Stanford University, respectively, all in Computer Science. He also received his B.S. with a minor in Business Economics from KAIST and his Ph.D. in Biomedical and Health Informatics from the University of Washington School of Medicine. Further, he worked at Microsoft Research and PARC, a Xerox company as a research intern, respectively. His research interests lie at the intersection of health informatics, human-computer interaction, decision-making, data visualization, and social computing. His research aimed to support individuals with special needs (e.g., older adults, vloggers with visual impairments, North Korean defectors with depression) through design and engineering across multiple domains: health, social media, sharing economy, and education. He is a recipient of the Korean Government Scholarship and Mogam Science Scholarship. Further information about his research is available at:
