After having a wide range of public and commercial experience across sectors as a service designer in Korea, I am studying for my PhD at Lancaster University My research interests cover: design thinking; service design; design management; design for IoT; and design policy.

My PhD study aims to develop an effective NPD (New Product Development) process for IoT (Internet of Things) products and services that will increase companies’ value and turnover. This can be achieved through investigating the whole system where value is created and the relevance of new product development processes in the development of IoT products and services. This Research will contribute to not only academia, but also manufacturing and service industries better understanding how value should be created through design and development process in order to embrace new market opportunities.
