Physical buttons are ubiquitous and offer rich haptic characteristics. Yet there has been little research attempting to expose their design for empirical and engineering research. Dr. Sunjun Kim and PhD student Yi-Chi Liao are developing a “universal button” that is able to simulate relevant haptic features, includign arbitrary (continuous) force-displacement curves throughout the travel range…

Her thesis work significantly contributes to understanding modern typing behavior and proposes new mathematical and computational methods for designing novel text input methods. The work formulates a theoretical basis for using exact optimization methods to optimize the problem of assigning symbols to input actions for text input. Therefore, she conducted extensive empirical studies of human…
