Kyoungwon was selected as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. Sidney Fels (google scholar, lab website). As a postdoctoral fellow, his main research project will be ViDeX, a collaborative project between UBC and Microsoft Canada Development Center (project website).
His work will be focused on investigating novel interaction techniques for personalized, shared video for education. The intent is that advanced video interaction will be supported by mobile, web and desktop to enhance learner and instructor engagement and learning outcomes. Using a user-centered design strategy, his research will create different prototypes to deploy at large and small scales to study how to improve the video experience for instructors and learners.
