Saelyne Yang

I am a first year Ph.D. student in the School of Computing at KAIST. I am working with Juho Kim as part of KIXLAB (the KAIST Interaction Lab).
I love human and computer. My research interests in Human-Computer Interaction focuses on making interactive videos.
I try to achieve the goal by 1) understanding the videos and 2) building interactive technologies on them.
