BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Kyung Hoon Hyun is a computational designer researching design automation and human-computer interaction developing design tools and methods that assist designers' creativity. In addition, he is interested in capturing meaningful connections among design, information, and cutting-edge technologies to aid design exploration. Specifically, he actively researched style quantification, automatic design alternative generation, 3D sketch-based modeling, and Bayesian model-based design support system. He published ~40 peer-reviewed academic papers including top-tier journals and conferences such as Advanced Engineering Informatics, Automation in Construction, Computer-Aided Design, CHI, and SIGGRAPH. He is also an editorial board member of the Archives of Design Research, CAADRIA, and the Korean Institute of Interior Design.

Dr. Hyun earned his Ph.D. from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) on computational design, and graduated from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) with Master's and Bachelor's degrees in industrial design. He worked as user experience designer at Samsung SDS, Experientia S.R.L and Pilotfish GmbH located in Korea, Italy, and Germany. Also, he served as a public designer for the Seoul Metropolitan Government. He is currently a project partner at Recon Labs Inc.

현경훈 박사는 디자인 컴퓨팅 연구를 하고 있으며 (세부분야: 디자인 자동화 및 인간-컴퓨터 상호작용), 이를 통해 디자이너들이 창의적 결과물을 만드는데 집중할 수 있도록 디자인 도구 및 방법을 제공하는 것을 목표로 한다. 그는 디자인, 정보, 그리고 최신 기술을 연계하여 사용자 및 디자이너 모두에게 도움이 될 수 있는 방법 연구에 관심을 두고 있다. 대표적으로 그는 스타일 정량화, 디자인 대안 자동 생성, 3D 스케치 기반 모델링, 베이지안 모델 기반 디자인 지원 시스템 등의 혁신적인 디자인 연구들을 제시해오고 있다. 이러한 노력으로 도출된 연구 결과를 Advanced Engineering Informatics, Automation in Construction, Computer-Aided Design, CHI, SIGGRAPH 를 포함한 국내외 저명한 학술지 및 학술대회에 약 40편의 논문을 게재하였다. 또한, Archives of Design Research, CAADRIA, 한국실내디자인학회에서 편집위원으로 활동하고 있다.

현박사는 한국과학기술원(KAIST)에서 컴퓨테이셔널 디자인 연구로 공학박사를 취득하였고, 로드 아일랜드 디자인 스쿨(RISD)일리노이 대학교(UIUC)에서 산업디자인 전공으로 석사 및 학사 학위를 받았다. 그는 한국, 독일, 이탈리아에 위치한 삼성 SDS, Experientia S.R.L, Pilotfish GmbH에서 디자이너로 일했었고, 서울특별시 소속 공공디자이너로 활동하였다. 그는 현재 Recon Labs Inc.에서 프로젝트 파트너로써 협업 및 자문을 수행중이다.
