Center for Design Research
Wendy Ju is a PhD graduate of the Center for Design Research at
Stanford University, and the founder of Ambidextrous Magazine, Stanford
University's Journal of Design. Her current research in the areas of
physical interaction design and ubiquitous computing investigates how implicit interactions can
enable novel and natural interfaces through the intentional
management of attention and initiative.
Wendy's work at the MIT Media Lab on an
counter was the direct predecessor to Microsoft's Kitchen of the
Future console, and her work with Remhi Post and Matt Reynolds on
the Pengachu handheld Linux platform strongly influenced both
Motorola's Linux phone development and the MIT's One Laptop Per
Child initiative. She studied Product Design and Mechanical Engineering as
an undergraduate at Stanford.
