Bin is a post-doc researcher exploring the intersection of Biofeedback and Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI) to generate applied knowledge for daily healthcare and stress management. His research tackles this challenge by transforming biofeedback technologies from clinical settings into everyday use, which can unobtrusively help people realize, cope with, and be resilient against their stress issues in workaday life before serious health problems are caused. His main expertise is: developing unobtrusive biofeedback tool to sense physiological data (e.g., heart-rate-variability or respiration), quantifying people’s stress accordingly, and designing real-time respiration training interfaces with trustable accuracy and aesthetically pleasing user-experience. His current research is to blend these biofeedback technologies into people’s workaday routines to calmly and intelligently promote healthful behaviour change, and thus to lead to their increased self-regulation skill of and resilience against chronic stress.
A mirror that lets you see inside yourself Biofeedback, like a mirror, enables individuals to see inside their body and improve self-regulation on their physiology to a healthy direction. However, for a long time, Biofeedback is considered only within the … Continue reading
Flowers for Life and Love Heart Bloom is a biofeedback device that collects heart rate data and visualizes it with the assistance of a pen plotter. The path and rhythm of the pen’s movements are dynamically coupled to physiological information, … Continue reading
To be a physiological resonance with the body RESonance is an immersive audio-visual biofeedback system that supports relaxation training should take an ‘ambient’ form beyond a GUI interaction paradigm. The system informs the users about their internal states (i.e., breath … Continue reading
Listen to the Inner Self Heart rate is regulated by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), producing a natural heart rate rhythm. When we are under chronic stress, the ANS activates the ‘fight-or-flight’ response constantly, which reduces the variability in our … Continue reading
