Research Interests:

Dr. Jeong's research aims to design, implement, and evaluate future interactive systems from the human factors perspective. He explores human performance and behavior to understand human interactions with autonomous and intelligent systems. He seeks to apply multiple engineering methodologies (e.g., behavioral experimental, human performance modeling, and data analytics & visualization) to addressing societal problems in human-system engineering domains including transportation, robotics, healthcare, and modern emerging technologies (e.g., augmented/virtual reality, artificial intelligence). His ultimate research goal is to advance the well-being and the quality of life of the physically and mentally vulnerable populations as well as the general population.
