David Kim is a Research Intern in the Microsoft Applied Sciences Group. He is interested in enabling unencumbered 3D interactions in AR and HCI applications by combining novel sensors, computer vision and graphics techniques.
David is a member of the Digital Interaction Group at Culture Lab, Newcastle University and is an off-site Ph.D. candidate working within the Interactive 3D Technologies group at Microsoft Research in Cambridge. He received his M.Sc. in Media Informatics from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in 2008. The projects he recently worked on include KinectFusion, a system for real-time dense surface reconstruction and geometry-aware interaction with Kinect, HoloDesk, a situated see-through display that enables direct 3D interaction, and Digits, a wrist-worn gloveless sensor for freehand 3D interactions anywhere.
In his spare time, David enjoys cooking, sketching, travelling and practicing taekwondo.
