About me



Seunghee Lee

My research aims to design interaction with autonomous systems.
I am interested in human interaction with autonomous vehicles, telepresence and the development of novel sustainable technology

Currently, my work focuses on designing Telepresence robots with Abstract Movements with Professor Francois Guimbretiere at Cornell. Additionally, I am working on creating a interactive fridge with features to help reduce foodwaste. 
Recently I worked on project IEUM, a multipurpose robot envisioned in future transportation technology. I am an undergrad studying Information Science (B.S.) with a concentration in Data Science and Interactive Technology at Cornell University.
