I am Hyunyoung [hyuh-nyeong], a PhD candidate at Université Grenoble Alpes, France.
I investigate the designs and applications of shape-changing interfaces. I am passionate about understanding underlying problems in control interfaces and providing design frameworks and toolkits to encourage designers to create solutions, mostly through shape-changing interfaces. As part of the effort, I suggested Morphees+, a refined taxonomy for shape-changing interfaces, which can be used as a design toolkit. As a case study for Morphees+, I invented KnobSlider, a shape-changing device for linear and rotational control. It targets real-world users such as sound engineers, stage artists, and pilots. I have done the work with my supervisors, Céline Coutrix and Anne Roudaut.
I have experience in research and industry. I worked as a UX designer at Samsung, filed 6 patents. I have been working in 4 different countries (France, UK, Germany, and South Korea), broadening my research perspectives and skills. I will finish my PhD in late 2019, and I am looking for a PostDoc position.
September 4-6, 2019
I will be at INTERACT '19, Cyprus to give a talk about our SplitSlider paper.
August 15-21, 2019
A journal article is accepted to Frontiers special topic on Shape Changing Robotic Structures and Interfaces. Me, Anne, and Céline extended our KnobSlider paper focusing on the design process of the device and the users' perception of shape-change speed properties.
July 1-2, 2019
I will visit Morphing Matter Lab to give a talk and be around in Pittsburgh.
June 26-28, 2019
May 2-3, 2019
I am invited to visit Human-Centered Ubiquitous Media Lab at LMU Munich and give a talk. It will be good to see old faces!
My paper with Miriam Greis, Andreas Korge, Albrecht Schmidt, and Céline Coutrix is accepted to INTERACT 2019. This paper has many meanings to me: the work is with a Bachelor student I supervised for the first time, and it is my first PhD paper I collaborated with people other than my supervisors. I'm proud of Andreas and the paper. The paper will appear around August.

March 21, 2019
My paper "ExpanDial: Designing a Shape-Changing Dial" is accepted to ACM DIS '19! The paper will appear soon.
March 17-20, 2019
I will demonstrate five tangible devices that can have value and uncertainty as input, at TEI '19. Swing by the demonstration!
December 19, 2018
I gave a talk about my PhD work at mi-lab, Austria. I appreciated the warm welcome from the team and enjoyed the discussions.
October 14-17, 2018
I will present at UIST'18 Doctoral Symposium. For who cannot attend the Doctoral Symposium, I will also present my dissertation at the public poster session.
October 1-5, 2018
I will attend IROS 2018 for the Workshop on Shape Changing Robotic Structures and Interfaces. I will give a short talk about the KnobSlider and demonstrate it.
I changed my website address from hyunyoungkim.com to hyunyoung.kim for the sake of simplicity.
I will present two papers at CHI '18. Swing by the talks. I will be happy to discuss research ideas.
I am back to Grenoble to finish my dissertation. I plan to finish it around October 2019.
My Morphees+ paper received CHI '18 Honourable Mention Award!
Collection of everyday reconfigurable objects is now online! Help us grow the collection and contribute to shape-changing interface community.
November 2017 - April 2018
I am visiting the University of Bristol to develop a physical design tool for shape-changing interfaces.
April 2016 - September 2017
I am visiting the University of Stuttgart with my supervisor Céline Coutrix.
