Hello, I'm a/an

I'm Yubin, currently a visiting student/researcher at Personal Robots Group, MIT Media Lab.
My research objective and interest lies in the area of human-robot interaction.
Specifically, I'm interested in studying affect recognition for child early literacy learning and developing
dialogue system for emotional wellness and medication support for older adults.


My experience has been focused on developing social agents that can perceive and understand social and affective exchanges in human interactions in an intuitive and reciprocal manner. Specifically, I am interested in developing social agents that can personalize their interactions with humans in the wild for an extended period of time.
