My name is JiWoong Jang, though I often go by Joon, and I’m originally from Seoul, South Korea. I’m currently a rising senior at Carnegie Mellon University, majoring in Artificial Intelligence, and minoring in Human-Computer Interaction.

My research interests are strongly motivated by my impairments in mobility, vision, and hearing and lie at the intersection of accessibility, disability studies, and machine learning. In the near future, I hope to pursue a Ph.D. exploring effective modalities of conveying real-time information (visual, haptics, auditory, etc.) in contexts involving individuals with disabilities.
