Why work at NYIT?
It's a great place to meet and teach talented, open-minded people. I have the opportunity to explore interesting topics drawn from real-world examples and research problems.
Coexistence and collaborative innovation between human intelligence and robotic technology. My research spans robotics, computer vision, haptics, and telepresence technologies.
I've worked in the higher education and business fields, including positions at Seoul National University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and LG Electronics.
To guide the intellectual growth of my students while intriguing their creative minds. Equally important is my goal to contribute to faculty research that can benefit society.
How has the latest technology influenced your teaching style?
With robotics being a highly integrative area of multidisciplinary topics, many of the latest technological products and issues can contribute to intriguing and challenging the students' intellectual curiosity and creativity. I use many multimedia contents to help the understanding of the course material, and also to intuitively connect the dots between the topic and real-world applications. Projects and homework for my courses involve the use of programming languages such as C/C++/C#/Python/Java, and gadgets like the iPhone, iPad, and Samsung GalaxyTab, which can be used to interact with robotic platforms, encouraging hands-on experience with exciting ideas.
Favorite tech gadget
Smart phones, tablets, and of course, robots!
Hiking, playing tennis and badminton, and taking walks with my family. I also enjoy traveling and photographing new places.
