HyunJoo Oh

Assistant Professor, School of Industrial Design and School of Interactive Computing (joint appointment)

HyunJoo Oh is an assistant professor with a joint appointment in the School of Industrial Design and the School of Interactive Computing. Working at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and design, she studies and builds creative technologies (tools, kits, and methods) that integrate everyday craft materials with computing. Based on a broad spectrum of design and computing technologies, she explores how familiar and accessible materials around us can be extended and transformed by computing technology both as a tool as a material, and investigates how such combinations can broaden existing creative possibilities for designers. Her work has been published and exhibited at ACM SIGCHI conferences and maker community.
