Hannah Park M.F.A.
Worked at Hyundai MOBIS, Seoul, South Korea (2010-2013), Human-Machine Interface Team
Hannah received a bachelor’s degree in Visual Communication from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). After she graduated from UTS, she worked for Hyundai MOBIS as a GUI designer in the Human Machine Interface team. She participated in development of in-vehicle infotainment systems including Hyundai’s Sonata, Genesis and Kia’s Ray EV. Hannah is especially passionate about understanding human behavior and exploring how design can promote behavior change. For her MFA thesis project, she is creating a mobile application that provides feedback on travel mode choice in terms of several different metrics, such as calories burned, cost, and carbon emission. She is also exploring how the app can satisfy people in different demographic and personal values. As a Graduate Student Researcher in PH&EV (Plug-in Hybrid and Electric Vehicle) Center, she has researched typology of on-market in-vehicle energy feedback displays, classifying types of displays based on distinguishing attributes that are relevant to their capacity for promoting behavior change (i.e., eco-driving). She is also participated in the white paper about the most up-to-date review of eco-driving, including analysis of driver-vehicle interfaces.
