Hello!

Welcome to my website. My name is Daye Kang :)

I am a recent graduate of the master's program in Industrial Design at

Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). 

My research interests rest at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), data visualization, and data science

My interest is in developing intelligent interfaces that make data more comprehensible by leveraging intuitive designs in interactive data visualizations. I believe this to be particularly impactful for promoting collaborations and productive discussions in a data-driven world.

I started my academic career in Visual Communication Design, focusing on UX research and animation at Hongik University. However, I wanted to learn how to implement my designs, so I joined the MakInteract Lab at KAIST and studied Industrial Design, focusing on HCI. I am looking to join a lab that fits my interests, where I can contribute to exciting research and progress the field of HCI together.

 

You can pronounce my name as Da-Ye [da ye].

ToonNote: Improving Communication in

Computational Notebooks Using

Interactive Data Comics                                 

Daye Kang, Tony Ho, Nicolai Marquardt, Bilge Mutlu, Andrea Bianchi​

ToonNote is a novel technique for representing computational notebooks in the form of interactive data comics. ToonNote provides a high-level, curated narrative of the dataset in Comic View. Readers can focus on data storytelling, and not be hindered by code, unnecessary outputs, or markdown and can switch back to the Notebook View when needed.

HeyTeddy: Conversational Test-Driven Development for Physical Computing

Yoonji Kim, Youngkyung Choi, Daye Kang, Minkyeong Lee, Tek-Jin Nam, Andrea Bianchi

Physical computing is a complex activity that consists of different but tightly coupled tasks: programming and assembling hardware for circuits. We propose a general-purpose prototyping tool based on conversation. HeyTeddy guides users during hardware assembly by providing additional information on requests or by interactively presenting the assembly steps to build a circuit.

Designing Internal Structure of Chocolate and Its Effect on Food Texture

Yujin Lee, Jee Bin Yim, Daye Kang, Hyeon-Beom Yi, Daniel Saakes

In this research, we explored the effects of the internal structure on the texture of chocolate by designing, building, and testing chocolates with different internal structures and internal chocolate percentage. Multiple layers of patterned chocolate were stacked as a fabrication method. Each layer was fabricated using a silicone mold that was made using a 3D printed model. We created seven types of chocolate variations through this system.

Lexia in Wonderland: Korean Education Service for Children with Dyslexia

Daye Kang, Hye-Ryeong Kim, Ji-Hae Lee, Jae Young Yun.

Treating dyslexia during childhood is very important. In Korea, this is not the case since the condition is not well understood. Also, there is a limited number of medical centers that offer treatment for it. We propose an education app for dyslexic children ages 5-10 in Korea that can help these children through active learning. By teaching the children Korean phonics using 'nonwords' in a fun and engaging way, they can be treated at home instead of visiting the medical centers.

Nudge Design to Increase Physical Activities for Hospitalized Children

Daye Kang, Hye-Min Choi, Ka-Hyun Kim, Younjoon Lee.

Hospitalized children are often asked to regularly walk in the hallway to stay active. However, the hallway is usually dull and empty. We created wallpapers and floor footprint stickers that use nudge design to be fun and engaging. Footprint stickers promote walking and leg stretches while the wallpaper contains stories that can add fun moments. Children are guided through stretching activities indicated on the wall.
