Young Eun is one of the very few people in the world, standing at the junction of technology and user-centered design, corporates and start-ups.

She has identified and promoted technologies and service providers that have become key features for Galaxy devices, such as Paper Artist (20M + devices including Galaxy S3), SwiftKey (50M+ devices starting from Galaxy Note3), Kids Mode (all Galaxy flagships).

Seeing the impact new technologies can make to the lives of mass consumer, she decided on to exploring the question how technology can make an impact to the mass audience & change behaviour, for which she is currently focusing on virtual reality technologies, at Royal College of Art in her Mphil/PhD programme.

Her recent project at RCA, ‘Exchanging Places on Virtual Reality’, a VR experience for cyclists and truck drivers how it feels like from the other’s perspective, has been showcased at the London Bike Show 2016 by the Metropolitan Police.
