Kyuha (Q) Shim is an Associate Professor in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University. He serves as a Steering Committee Member of AIGA Design Educators Community (DEC) and Education Director of AIGA Pittsburgh. His research and teaching focus on designing systems for interactions using both emerging computational technologies and fundamental principles from classical design practice.

At CMU, Shim teaches computational and emerging media design at Carnegie Mellon University, where he also directs the Computational Creativty Lab. He currently teaches required courses such as First-year Design Studio, Junior Communication Design Studio: Social Systems, and Graduate Interaction Design Studio. The topics include basic design at the first-year level, multi-modal and data-driven systems at the junior level, and interaction-driven communications, environments, and products for services at the graduate level. He developed and taught the following elective courses (Computational Design Thinking and Information and Space), both of which use code as a creative medium to explore the future of communications and interactions.

Before CMU, Shim held faculty positions at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and Royal College of Art (RCA). He was a recipient of Adobe's Design Education Faculty Award in 2012 (Winner of ADAA's Innovation in Traditional Media in Education). He has guest lectured and taught at numerous schools.
