Youngwook Do is a PhD student at the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, advised by Sauvik Das and Gregory Abowd. He explores how to design and implement a novel tangible interface that can 1) improve cyber security methods or 2) encourage a user's better cyber security behaviors.
He is currently interested in building physically deformable interfaces to enable rich interactions between a computer and a user.
He works on the implementation of various types of sensing techniques including pattern recognition, computer vision, signal processing with machine learning, and resistive or capacitive sensing, and on the development of digital fabrication systems to make shape-changing interfaces by hacking 3-Axis gantry platforms.
On the side, he, known as his artist name Woog Doe (sometimes stylized as ₩oog Doe), worked as a music producer and is interested in bridging various realms such as between design, art and engineering.
Before he joined Georgia Tech, he was a member of Morphing Matter Lab at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and NoRILLA, a CMU spinoff founded and led by Postdoc. Nesra Yannier.
