I am a professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), with a joint appointment of Creative IT Engineering and a courtesy appointment of Graduate School of Artificial Intelligence.

My research seeks to develop easy, effective, and novel interaction methods and technologies between human users and a system of interest, e.g., computers, robots, cars, and electronic devices, with emphasis on the physical interaction where the human somatosensory system has the major role. As such, my work centers around haptics. I have published over 170 international research articles, and my basic research results have been applied to mobile devices, automobiles, and consumer electronics,

I received the 2011 Early Career Award from the IEEE Technical Committee on Haptics. I have been serving as an Associate Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Haptics since 2020.

I am a lifetime member of KROS and HCI Korea, a senior member of IEEE, and a member of ACM.
