I am a researcher in the Human Computer Interaction Group at Miscrosoft Research Asia in Beijing. My research interest is focused on haptics including feedback technologies on mobile devices, exploring new HCIs with haptics, and haptic perception, although my research backgrounds broadly cover psychophysics, 3D watermarking, 3D reconstruction with multiple-cameras, digital image processing, and noninvasive brain machine interface.
I received a Ph.D degree from the school of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University in 2010, in the field of Haptics, more specifically, visuohaptic 3D watermarking. Before going to Purdue University in 2005, I had worked in Korea as a research engineer for KERI (Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute) and LG Electronics in developing medical imaging system and multimedia applications and codecs for 3G mobile phones. Right after my PhD study, I went to the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center to do research in Brain Machine Interface with touch as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. Prior to joining MSRA in 2012, I was a chief research enginner at LG Electronics and have led a research team developing telepresence (the next generation of video conferencing) system.
Internship opportunities are available year-round in the field of touch feedback on touch screens of mobile devices. Preinquiry contact (firstname.lastname@example.org) is recommended.
