Personal profile


I'm researching for innovative solutions to critical technological and societal challenges through repurposing technologies as design materials.

Research profile

Rong-Hao Liang is Assistant Professor of Sensor Technology. Liang has an interest in technical human-computer interaction (HCI) research, with a specific focus on innovative tangible and wearable sensors, ubiquitous displays and rapid prototyping tools. He has published more than 30 papers on Technical HCI Research and holds several user interface hardware patents.

Liang co-chaired the paper track of the 10th international Design and Semantics of Form and Movement (DeSForM) conference and served as a member of ACM UIST and ACM TEI conference program committee.

Academic background

Rong-Hao Liang holds a MSc in Electrical Engineering (2010) from National Taiwan University and received his PhD in Computer Science (2014) from the same institute. In 2015, he founded GaussToys Inc. in Taiwan, a company using magnetic-field sensors to create innovative ways to interact with computers. From 2014 to 2016, Liang was assistant research fellow in the Intel-NTU Research Center of Connected Context Computing of National Taiwan University. In 2016, he joined the Industrial Design department of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) as Assistant Professor.

Education and Teaching

Squad: Crafting Wearable Senses


Research topics I am interested in coaching

“I facilitate passion-driven projects that are related to the students' personal interests and hobbies. I support the students in designing innovative yet practical user interfaces with emerging technologies. I would love to work with students who dare to accept grand challenges.”

Vision on education, coaching style

“My core mission in education is to sustain the student's curiosity and enable the students to create valuable things professionally. I keep the students motivated and empowered as well as their attention and enthusiasm until they meet their learning objectives. I ensure that the students do the things rights before they do the right things. A solid execution of technical realization when they are using their creativity in crafting practical, applicable solutions for real-world problems. I guide students to become ambitious self-directed learners who think creatively and act professionally.”
