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 new opportunities with human-computer interaction, augmented/virtual/mixed reality, wearable devices, 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
