Biography

Soyoung Choi is a research assistant professor in Nursing at Yonsei University. As a nurse researcher and data scientist, her research topics involve self-care of heart failure (HF), family caregiving in HF, and cardiovascular disease in people with (dis)abilities. She has used data science to conduct bibliometric studies of published health literature, discover latent topics from big-data-sized textual archives, and develop predictive models by using machine learning. For her dissertation research, she has analyzed a large number of serial interview scripts collected from 104 HF family caregivers using machine learning algorithms and content analysis to explore dynamic nature of HF family caregiving experiences. As an emerging young scholar, she has published 11 journal papers and conference proceedings including Journal of Cardiac Failure, Research and Theory for Nursing Practice, and Western Journal of Nursing Research. She uses both R and Python as her primary programming languages, and has published three statistical computing packages in the peer-reviewed Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).
