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 HCI 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 algorithm produced over 50 patents. His research interests include designing the principles, techniques, and technologies for the next generation of sensing devices and tactile displays that extend the interactive space and enhance human perception, and understand human psychophysics. For his PhD research, he is exploring the thermography-based affective computing to understand human affects and support psychological needs.
