Touchscreen gesture sonification for people with visual impairments
I am an assistant professor in Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Ewha Womans University. I was a postdoctral research fellow for Cognitive Assistance Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University, worked with Prof. Kris Kitani and Prof. Chieko Asakawa. Before then, I studied at University of Maryland, College Park as a member of Human Compter Interaction Lab, advised by Prof. Leah Findlater, where I received my PhD in Computer Science.
My research goal in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is to enrich user experience with novel interaction technologies with minimum physical and cognitive loads. I am particularly interested in improving information access by redesigning state-of-art technologies (e.g., wearables, augmented reality) for individuals with various needs, especially for people with visual impairments.
