Hi. My name is Jaeyeon [JAY-awn] and I am a phd candidate in the School of Computing, KAIST. I have been an active member of KAIST HCI Lab led by professor Geehyuk Lee since 2014.
In the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), I mostly have been working on wearable haptic interfaces that enables information transfer through the skin. Since wearable interefaces have relatively small form factors and always worn on the body, I am interested in how to transfer information efficiently in the limited contact area (CHI'15, CHI'18) in and how to transfer information more comfortably without contact (UIST'16). I was a research intern at Microsoft Research where I worked with my awesome mentor Mike Sinclair.
I had my master's degree in Electrical Engineering from KAIST and Bachelor's in Control Engineering from Kwangwoon University. I am a recipient of NAVER phd fellowship 2017. Scroll down to read more about my research projects.

Multimodal Watch-back Tactile Display (CHI'18)
We proposed the idea of layering two disjoint tactile sensations (wind and vibration) together to expand the information capacity of watch-back tactile display. We presented interaction scenarios and the pattern recognition experiment results of multimodal tactile display.
Non-contact Wearable Tactile Display (UIST'16)
Traditional wearable tactile displays transfer tactile stimulations through a firm contact between the stimulator and the skin. We conjecture that a firm contact may not be always possible and acceptable. We explored the concept of a non-contact wearable tactile display using an airflow, which can transfer information without a firm contact.
Watch-back Tactile Display (CHI'15)
A watch-back tactile display (WBTD) is expected to be a viable supplement to the user interface limitations of a smartwatch. However, its design requires that many design parameters such as tactor types and stimulus patterns be determined. We conducted a series of experiments to explore a best design of a WBTD consisting of 3×3 tactors and presented the results.
Square Watch Interaction (IJHCS, 2018)
Smartwatch has a limited input vocabulary because of its small touchscreen. Using touch sensitive edge as an input is one of the promising solutions. We explored interaction techniques that use the possible combinations of touch sensitive edges and the touchscreen.
Touch Branch (Lumi Land (2017); DIS'18)
Interpersonal touch, one of the most primitive social languages, is an excellent design element frequently utilized in interaction design. We built an interactive system that can sense simple touch and interpersonal touches. We observed the interpersonal touches and discussed the effect of social relationship and the spatial distance.
This research project was a part of an interactive installation project,Lumi Land (2017), at National Science Museum in Korea.
