Are virtual and augmented realities (VR/AR) the next human-computer interaction (HCI) paradigm? This lecture examines issues in interactive VR/AR systems through a lens of HCI research. Building on his previous research, Yoon makes a case for natural user interfaces and asynchronous collaboration in VR/AR.


Dongwook Yoon is an assistant professor at the UBC Department of Computer Science. Yoon’s research lies at the intersection of human-computer interactions, computer-supported cooperative work, computer-mediated communication, and educational technology. He builds interactive systems powered by expressive multimodal interactions. Yoon received his B.S. with Electrical Engineering in 2007 and M.S. with Computer Graphics in 2009 at Seoul National University. In 2017, Yoon earned his Ph.D. in Information Science at Cornell University. For more information, please visit his webpage here.
