Hi, I'm Hye-Young Jo, an HCI researcher. I finished my Master's at MAKinteract lab, KAIST, where I had a great time working closely with Prof. Andrea Bianchi. Now, I work as a RA at Chung-Ang University with Prof. Yoonji Kim to enrich my academic journey.

I'm interested in AR/VR interaction, healthcare, and AI. My research goal is to assist individuals in leading healthy and creative lives. To achieve this, I investigate how to make exercise and creative activities immersive and enjoyable by curating digital content in relation to bodily experiences and seamlessly translating real-world activities into the virtual world.

Before joining the research community, I worked as a film VFX compositor and AR/VR generalist at Dexter Studios for several years after college. Prior to that, I studied fine art (painting & media arts) at Seoul National University.
