Seungwoo Je

Hello, my name is Seungwoo Je.

I am a PhD. candidate at KAIST(Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) industrial design. I am an active member of MAKinteract Lab, and we’re part of the bigger HCI@KAIST group. In 2019, I received the Global PhD Fellowship as recognition for my research in Human-Computer Interaction from the Korean government.

I live with lovely two cats. I love to chat with good people. :) | CV | Google scholar


I am a Human-Computer Interaction researcher.

My research vision is to enrich and diversify the interaction between users and computers by creating novel experiences with emerging technology. My research involves understanding users in relation to the new types of interfaces, designing appropriate interaction using design methods, and developing unique devices as well as systems.

I am interested in the Augmented Human, VR/AR, Haptics, Wearable, Fabrication, Tangible Interaction, and Human-Centered Design. I made publications in several major HCI venues, including CHI, UIST.

I like working with people in various fields. So, my research is very multidisciplinary, as seen in my collaborative work with Industrial Design, Computer Science, Mathematical Sciences, Architecture, Aerospace departments.
