Wendy Ju is an assistant professor at the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Technion–Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech and in the Information Science field at Cornell University.
Assistant Prof. Ju comes to the Jacobs Technion–Cornell Institute from the Center for Design Research at Stanford University, where she was executive director of interaction design research, and from the California College of the Arts, where she was an associate professor of interaction design in the Design MFA program. Her work in the areas of human-robot interaction and automated vehicle interfaces highlights the ways that interactive devices can communicate and engage people without interrupting or intruding.
Asst. Prof. Ju has innovated numerous methods for early-stage prototyping of automated systems to understand how people will respond to systems before the systems are built. Her monograph on The Design of Implicit Interactions was published in 2015.
