Jeyeon's research interests reside in the design and development of assistive wearable sensors, toward more flexible, comfortable, reliable, lightweight, launderable, sensitive, and affordable – truly wearable – daily healthcare solutions, as well as monitoring soft systems such as parachute canopy. Stretchable fiber optic and passive RFID (radiofrequency identification) have been the main tools to break through the limitations of the existing sensors. He is also passionate about investigating human factors through 3D body scanning technologies to find the sweet spot where strong user comfort and high performance of on-body gears meet, like the optimal fit of U.S. firefighting boots.
