Brief biography

Youngjun is currently pursuing his PhD in UCLIC working with Nadia Berthouze, Nicolai Marquardt and 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 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. For his PhD research, he is exploring biomedical thermography to understand and automatically recognise a person's mental stress and to support a person's psychological needs.
