Brief biography

Youngjun is currently pursuing his PhD at the UCL Interaction Centre under the supervision of Prof.Dr. Nadia Berthouze, Dr. Nicolai Marquardt and Dr. Simon Julier. 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 LG Electronics CTO Research Division (Seoul) for five years (2011-2015) and was a principal investigator of 4D Touch Project, which has been successfully commercialising a 3D input and gesture recognition technology in collaboration with major automobile manufacturers in the world. His previous works on human-computer interaction, haptics, sensor& actuator and machine learning 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. In his PhD research, he has been exploring (and made possible) the use of low cost, mobile, biomedical thermography (1) to extract stress-related physiological signatures in mobile contexts and (2) to automatically monitor a person's mental stress level. The aim is to develop technology-based intervention to support a person's psychological needs and wellbeing.
