Ju Hong Park Ph.D. is a licensed engineer, architect, and researcher. His research is centered on Human-Machine-Collaboration, through research on Machine Learning and Computer Vision, as a vehicle to expand the horizon of human capability. He is especially passionate about theories and approaches to enhancing human capabilities through design thinking that defines the limits of brain, body, and behaviors by re-framing the context of problems instead of attempting to solve within them.
He is currently based in the School of Architecture at the University of Miami collaborating with researchers and professionals in the U.S. Army, Miller School of Medicine, and Computer Science. Prior to being appointed as an Assistant Professor at UM, he was a researcher at MIT School of Architecture and Media Lab, and architect at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) and the Coop Himmelb(l)au.
Ju Hong Park received his Ph.D. in Architecture from MIT (major in Design and Computation, and minor in Education with Harvard Graduate School of Education). He also earned M. Arch from Harvard University with faculty nomination for the James Templeton Kelly Thesis Prize, and B. Eng. in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and Architecture from Hong-ik University.
