Research Interests

In a society where the real and the virtual are becoming more and more continuous, I am interested in the influence of technology on human capabilities and potentials and how we can use technology to enrich our lives and experiences. While the structure of society is changing rapidly, some aspects of human nature remain unchanged. Based on a psychological and physiological understanding of humans, I am working on researching a methodology for intervening technology in embodied interactions and designing a context for intervening technology.

My research is related to the following topics:

1. Well-being in cyber-physical society
2. Interaction methods to alleviate cognitive load and emotional labor
3. Methodologies for effective/optimal design and augmentation of subjective experience
