Her primary research interest is in digital interfaces that seamlessly integrate into everyday objects. Her past work includes flexible and customizable printed sensing surfaces for gestural control, time-of-flight modules for 3D gesture tracking, and wearable sensing for dynamic management of ubiquitous media. At MIT, Nan-Wei was an Energy Fellow, and has extensive experience developing low-power sensing systems and wearable electronics. She has worked in a number of industrial research labs, among them Microsoft Research and the Nokia Research Center, and is currently assigned as the R&D lead of Project Jacquard at Google ATAP. She holds a PhD and MS degree in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab, where she worked in the Responsive Environments Group under Prof. Joseph A. Paradiso, and a MS in Materials Science and Engineering from National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan.Founder, CEO @ We work with startups, researchers and companies to develop hardware prototypes for product development and tools for research. From September 2013 to Present (2 years 4 months) PhD Candidate, Research Assistant @ From September 2009 to August 2013 (4 years) Co-founder, hardware engineering lead @ Founding team member and hardware engineering lead of 3dim, a MIT spin-off startup. I developed the optoelectronics system of a low-power 3D sensor system for short-range gesture detection based on time-of-flight sensing. 3dim received the grand prize of MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition. From October 2012 to July 2013 (10 months) Research Intern @ Research internship at Nokia Research Hollywood with Dr. Ron Azuma. During the internship I wrote firmware and software for the wireless communication between an embedded badge system (AVR32 core) and ambient display network. Our project was based on a generic loop-based software music sequencer with C++ / openFrameworks, which allows users to recompile, re-contextualize musical phrases into a new context under different graphic metaphors. From June 2011 to September 2011 (4 months) Research Intern @ Research internship with Dr. Steve Hodges and Prof.Joseph Paradiso at Microsoft Research Cambridge(MSRC). During the internship I Initiated and designed the hardware and firmware of an electromagnetic field sensing floor system based on conductive inkjet printing technology. The research during this internship resulted in a full paper at Ubicomp and a US utility patent. From July 2010 to October 2010 (4 months) Research Intern @ From July 2006 to October 2006 (4 months) Intern @ From July 2005 to September 2005 (3 months) MS/PhD, Media Arts and Sciences @ Massachusetts Institute of Technology From 2007 to 2013 BS/MS, Materials Science and Engineering @ National Tsing Hua University From 2001 to 2007 Nan-Wei Gong is skilled in: Human Computer Interaction, Sensors, Rapid Prototyping, Hardware Development, Analog Circuit Design, Electronics, Software Engineering, Machine Learning, Algorithms, Signal Processing, LaTeX, Computer Science, Matlab, Computer Vision, Image Processing, Research, C++, Python, Programming
