Welcome to HCI Tech Lab!

We are a multidisciplinary research group working on physical computing, natural user interface, and socially acceptable interactions. Our research focuses on enabling novel interactions for augmented/virtual/mixed reality through sensing & feedback technology, wearables, and applied machine learning.

Our research vision is to enable natural user interactions that overcome physical, mental, and social barriers. To achieve this, we will focus on

  • Intelligent Sensing & Effective Haptics
  • Predictive & Context-aware Interactions
  • Socially Acceptable Interactions
