Chanmi Kim is a PhD candidate at the Interaction Design group in the Department of Design, Product and Management.
Her interest is in human-environment interaction and particularly in how design of environment and technology can contribute to human well-being by inducing positive moods.
In her PhD project ‘Digital Nature’ funded by Philips, she investigates positive environmental effects (especially those with nature-based stimuli) on well-being of patients and builds knowledge for creating a therapeutic environment to prevent delirium. The research result will be applied to enhancement of Philips VitalSky, a personalized light therapy system in intensive care units.
Prior to starting her PhD, Chanmi worked as a user experience researcher at Safran Group, where she contributed in generating customer insights and developing concepts for enhancing inflight experience within various topics such as onboard medical treatment, onboard retail, crew rest and passenger rest for Airbus platform.
Her educational background is in industrial design. She earned her M.Sc. degree with a focus on mood-driven design research from the program, Design for Interaction, at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. She obtained her B.A. degree in spatial design at Kookmin University in Republic of Korea.
