AJung Moon is a Vanier Scholar and Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia studying human-robot interaction and roboethics. She specializes in designing nonverbal communication cues, such as hand gestures and gaze cues, for robots for human-robot collaboration contexts. Currently, she is developing ways for humans and robots to negotiate’ using nonverbal gestures to quickly resolve resource conflicts. She is also a co-founder of the Open Roboethics initiative, a roboethics think tank focused on exploring ways in which various stakeholders of robotics technologies can work together to influence interactive robot designs.
