New Researcher Award
Dr Ki Joon KIM
Dr Kim investigates the sociopsychological effects of human–technology interactions by examining how humans respond to various affordances (e.g., modality, agency, interactivity, or navigability) present in digital media interfaces. Specifically, he explores the processes by which these affordances influence the behavioural and psychological outcomes of technology-mediated communication. Dr Kim also develops theoretical paradigms by which human interactions with the latest pervasive technologies (such as the Internet of Things or wearable devices) are perceived as socially meaningful and persuasive.
