Biography

Moon Choi is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Science and Technology Policy at KAIST. She has received her Ph.D. in Social Welfare from Case Western Reserve University Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences and completed her two-year postdoctoral training in epidemiology at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. Before joining KAIST in 2014, she was an Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky College of Social Work and also interned at United Nations Secretariat Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

Her research focuses on aging, social welfare, and technology policy. Dr. Choi has published in the areas of senior transportation, mobility limitations, and health and mental health disparities among older adults and been expanding her work to QoLT, gerontechnology, and related policies. She has founded and run a research group called Aging and Technology Policy Lab [고령사회 기술복지 정책 실험실]: aging.kaist.ac.kr

Dr. Choi is increasingly interested in creative uses of digital media as a means to convey information to the general public, and won awards from Hartford Geriatric Social Work Initiative and the Gerontological Society of America (GSA) for her YouTube videos on aging. Her short films about the meaning of driving and independence in later life were also selected to be screened at the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Meeting as well as the American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting. In her spare time, she enjoys drawing and painting.
