Dr. Uichin Lee is a Professor in the School of Computing at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), leading the Interactive Computing Lab, whose mission is to study intelligent positive computing systems that can intervene in threats to human health and digital wellbeing. His major research areas are Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp), Sensor Data Science (Internet of Things), and Data Visualization. His current research focus on digital health and wellbeing is to collect real-time mobile, wearable, and IoT sensor data, apply data science techniques to analyze individuals’ wellbeing states, and design novel just-in-time digital health and wellbeing intervention systems.
He received a Ph.D. degree in computer science from UCLA in 2008. He worked for Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs as a member of technical staff before joining KAIST in 2010. He has joint affiliations with the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, the Graduate School of Data Science at KAIST, and the KAIST Health Science Institute.
In 2023, he was inducted as a member of the SIGCHI Academy, an honorary group of individuals who have made substantial contributions to the field of human-computer interaction (HCI). He served as a program committee member of the key HCI conferences and journals, such as ACM CHI, CSCW, and Ubicomp, and as an Editor for PACM HCI (CSCW) and PACM IMWUT (Ubicomp). He received the best paper awards at ACM CHI’16, AAAI ICWSM’13, IEEE CCGrid’11, and IEEE PerCom’07, and an impact award from IEEE IoT Forum'19.
