Faculty Member Jooyoung Oh on Design Research
February 27, 2019
"Design Research is like studying mushrooms. We take a look at, smell, taste, touch and feel it. We study the environment, soil and plants around it. We study how it interacts with other species. The best way to get to know the mushroom is to become one."
