Hi, I'm Sun

I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student at GAMMA lab, University of Maryland, advised by Professor Dinesh Manocha. My goal is to utilize VR and AR technology for improving users' communication and make these tools widely accessible.
Before coming to Maryland, I received my B.E in Computer Science and Engineering at Korea University. There, I was part of the Interactive 3D Media Lab, advised by Professor Junghyun Han. My previous research has been on Mixed Reality Collaborations, AR interfaces, Redirected Walking techniques and pseudo-haptics.
