Youngkyoon Jang, 장영균(張英均), Ph.D. 

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Multimedia and Vision (MMV) Research Group, which is part of School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). I work with Dr. Ioannis (Yiannis) Patras at QMUL and collaborate with Dr. Hatice Gunes of University of Cambridge as a visiting researcher. I received my Ph.D. degree from Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) under the supervision of Dr. Woontack Woo.

My research explores novel natural user interface technologies that aim to overcome challenges in interactions between humans and computers in a wearable AR/VR environment, specializing in identifying users and understanding human behaviours based on mobile & wearable computing, visual computing, and gesture interaction. Besides my research background in computer science, I draw on a diverse set of skills, including machine learning (particularly Deep Learning(CNN), Random Forest), computer vision, AR & VR, biometrics, and video (including IR, color, and depth images) processing.
