I am a 4th year PhD student at HCI Lab in KAIST, working with professor Geehyuk Lee. My research focuses on understanding human oculomotor behaviors and identifying new opportunities to enhance vision- and eye-related user interactions. In addition to this primary interest, I've explored various topics such as haptics and text entry.
