Welcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Technology and a Director of the SMART Lab ( at Purdue University, West Lafayette. I received a B.S. degree in Electronics Engineering and a M.S. in Electronics and Radio Engineering with a specialization in Automatic Control from Kyung Hee University in 2008 and 2010, a Ph.D. degree in Technology from Purdue University in 2014, and held a postdoctoral fellow position at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University from 2014 to 2015.

I am a roboticist. I combine the practical and theoretical approaches for maximal impact, and the scope of my research spans robotic fundamentals to robot development, as well as system design and integration of robotics technology and algorithms. My current research interests include multi-robot systems, sensor networks, human-robot interaction, robot design and control, with applications in field robotics and assistive technology and robotics.

I am a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, the Purdue PPI Outstanding Faculty in Discovery Award, the Purdue CIT Outstanding Graduate Mentor Award, and the Purdue Focus Award.
