Hyeonjeong Byeon

Ph.D. student, University of Washington


I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Human-Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington, advised by Profs. Gary Hsieh and Sean A. Munson.

My research primarily focuses on designing and building LLM-infused systems to advocate for positive behavior. Specifically, some of my recent works include: (i) understanding how the personas in LLM affect the credibility of the contents and (ii) exploring the roles of LLMs in making science communication more accessible and trustworthy.

Prior to joining UW, I did my undergrad in Computer Science & Engineering (minor in Statistics) at Ewha Womans University. I also worked at the Dynamic Graphics Project Lab at the University of Toronto and the HCI Lab at Ewha Womans University as an undergraduate research assistant.
