Seonwook (Wookie) Park


I am a Senior Research Scientist at NVIDIA Research, where I am part of the AI-Mediated Reality and Interaction (AMRI) research group. I am particularly interested in computational human perception with a focus in measuring and understanding human gaze.

I completed my PhD in the Advanced Interactive Technologies lab at ETH Zurich, advised by Prof. Dr. Otmar Hilliges. As part of my research, I proposed novel computer vision and machine learning techniques as well as image and video datasets for the task of webcam-based gaze estimation. Prior to joining NVIDIA, I worked at Lunit as a Research Scientist where I worked on topics in microscope image analysis and computational pathology (CPATH).

Jun 24, 2024 I joined NVIDIA Research as a Senior Research Scientist. I will be working on diverse topics in Computer Vision and Deep Learning with a focus on human perception and understanding.
May 15, 2024 I created this homepage using al-folio.
Jul 20, 2020 I joined Lunit as a Research Scientist. I will be working on microscope image analysis methods in Computational Pathology (CPATH), hopefully leading to improved cancer patient survival.
Jun 05, 2020 I successfully defended my PhD. Many thanks to my examiners: Otmar Hilliges, Jean-Marc Odobez, Shalini De Mello, and Siyu Tang.
