I am Taiwoo Park, an assistant professor at Seattle Pacific University (SPU). I believe that interactive media and video games have huge potential to enrich our everyday life. I have been creating and studying virtual reality and immersive media, as well as exergames (exercise-based games, or, exertion games), and developing software/hardware platforms to support them. I also enjoy creating novel interfaces and mobile/ubiquitous services using smartphones, Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors, and 3D printers.
I am at the Department of Computer Science of Seattle Pacific University (SPU) since September 2018. Before joining SPU, I was an assistant professor at the Department of Media and Information (MI) of the College of Communication Arts and Sciences (CAS). I was the director of iVerse lab, and affiliated with GEL lab and CARISMA lab. I have graduated from Computer Science of KAIST in South Korea and earned my three degrees there.
My favorite games include Overwatch, Quake Live, and I am a sort of sniper enjoying critical shots at a long distance. Had been practicing League of Legends. Had enjoyed Galaga, Seibu Cup Soccer, Virtua Fighter 2, Super Robot War 4th/F, Chrono Trigger, and Portal. I play guitar, drum, and am practicing Electric Wind Instrument (EWI).
