Hyunseung (Harris) Bang

Harris Bang is a fifth year Ph.D student in mechanical engineering at Cornell University.  His research interests are in developing intelligent systems that can collaborate with humans for early-phase design of complex systems.

An interactive design approach can combine rigor and consistency of computational tools with creative and holistic views of the humans. Harris is investigating different means of communication for exchanging information between the human and an intelligent agent, to enable effective collaboration. Specifically, he develops software tools that utilize data mining and visualization to support tradespace exploration and complex decision making in engineering design. His work draws from a variety of technical domains, including cognitive science, artificial intelligence, data mining, and human-computer interaction.

Prior to joining Cornell, he received his bachelor’s degree in both mechanical engineering and bioengineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 2009.
