Brief biography

Youngjun is currently pursuing his PhD in UCLIC working with Nadia Berthouze and Nicolai Marquardt. He received a MSc in Robotics from KAIST(Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) in 2011. Before joining UCLIC in 2015, he worked as a researcher in the LG Electronics Research Center (Seoul) for five years(2011-2015) and was a principal investigator of the 4D Touch Project, which has been successfully commercialising a 3D input technology in collaboration with major automobile manufacturers in the world. His previous works on human-computer interaction, haptics, sensor& actuator and machine learning algorithm produced over 50 patents. His research interests include designing the principles, techniques, and technologies for the next generation of brain-computer interfaces that extend the interactive space and enhance human perception, and understand affects and psychophysiology. For his PhD research, he is exploring biomedical thermography to understand and automatically recognise human affects and to support a person's psychological needs.
