I started as an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Culture Technology
at KAIST in September 2021 and launched HCI Tech Lab. We are looking for a few undergraduate research interns for 2021 Fall semester & Winter.
HCI Tech Lab Introduction
As an interdisciplinary research group in Culture Technology,
we build physical/digital interactive system empowered by novel sensing/haptic technologies.
In HCI Tech Lab, we aim to explore novel interactive technologies that bring direct benefits
to real world users. Our research process generally includes:
Find gaps between interface/device and human
Bridge the gap with novel technical/social solution
Customization & Recommender Toolkit for Sensing/Haptic Interfaces design in AR/VR. (Related Projects: TRing, iSoft, HapSense )
Design study (e.g., Elicitation, data capture) on deformable/soft/wearable interfaces. (Related Projects: BikeGesture )
We are looking for students who are eager to learn and build physical & digital interactive system. (Looking for students from diverse backgrounds & majors)
We are looking for students who are ready for get their hands dirty for prototyping.
We are looking for students with responsibility who can actually realize proposed ideas.
We are looking for students to have prototyping experience or intro-level HCI knowledge. (Optional, but strongly recommended)
Only accept students who can participate more than 3 months (12 weeks) or more.
Flexible start and end dates.
Prefers students who are willing to extend the internship. At the end of the internship, we will discuss
about extending the internship. The decision will depend on various factors (Internship progress, fit to the lab, commitment).
Flexible working hours. Full commitment (15~20 hours per week during the semester or 40 hours per week during winter) is required.
Personal office space will be provided in the N5 building (currently work-in-progress).
URP is a great option for undergraduate students at KAIST.
