About Me


JiWoong Jang (장지웅)

(I usually go by Joon)

phd student @ CMU HCII
research in A11y & HCI
AXLE Lab @ CMUVariAbility Lab @ CMU

I'm a second-year Ph.D. student at the Human Computer Interaction Institute, at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science. I'm advised by Patrick Carrington and Andrew Begel and currently am a member of AXLE Lab and VariAbility Lab.

I conduct research at the intersection of accessibility (A11y), disability studies, computer vision applications, and IxD for computer and robotic systems.

Outside of research, I am passionate about issues of equitable access for persons with disabilities, particularly with education. If you identify as a person with a disability and are thinking about issues of academic access or starting research, please reach out!

In my off time, I freelance as a video/music director and producer and play a mix of drums and piano.

If you have any questions, please reach me using the various links around the page/site. (If you notice that this website is inaccessible, please do ping! TIA~)
