Jae-Hyun Jung, PhD, FAAO 

Dr. Jae-Hyun Jung is a Human Vision and Motion Perception Scientist at Nvidia Research since 2024. Before, he was an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Schepens Eye Research Institute/Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School. Dr. Jung received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Seoul National University, Korea, in 2012. He is Fellow of American Academy of Optometry (FAAO). Dr. Jung was a consultant to many companies of head mounted displays (HMD), vision aids, and institutions of vision science. 

Dr. Jung's research focuses on the interface between computational systems and human visual perception. He proposes to uncover the principles underlying human visual perception and action and apply them to improve displays and vision aids using engineering approaches. He has studied various realistic and effective visual representation methods to interact with people. He has also studied various three-dimensional (3D) imaging, display systems, and image processing methods. His current research interests focus on AR/VR simulations for mobility testing and training, modeling human perception and action in locomotive behavior. He was awarded several federal grants including NIH and DoD. He was presented the Alice Adler Fellowship Award and Best paper of the year award by Harvard Medical School, and Merck Young Scientists Award by Society for Information Display (SID).
