AJung Moon is a PhD candidate and a Vanier Scholar at the University of British Columbia. She studies human-robot interaction and roboethics / robot ethics under the supervision of Drs. Elizabeth Croft and Mike Van der Loos. Currently she is a visiting student at the Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory (LASA) at EPFL.

Her research interest is focused on studying the intersection of human-robot interaction (HRI) and roboethics. She specializes in designing nonverbal communication cues (hand gestures, gaze cues) for robots for human-robot collaboration contexts. Currently, she is developing ways for humans and robots to ‘negotiate’ a way out of conflicts using nonverbal gestures.
