In this episode, Marwa Mohammed Alaa Eldean Eldiwiny interviews Yong-Lae Park, Associate Professor at Seoul National University in South Korea, about the bio-inspired design and manufacture of soft robots and microrobots for healthcare. Park’s research goal is to analyze the design and dynamics of biological systems and transform them into robotic/mechatronic systems for human life. Some of the his projects include development of artificial skin sensors, soft Muscle Actuators, and wearable robots for human rehabilitation.

Yong-Lae Park

Yong-Lae Park is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Seoul National University.  Previously, Park was an Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University in the Robotics Institute and the School of Computer Science.  Park received his Doctoral and Master’s Degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford. He earned his Batchelor’s Degree from Kansas State University in Manufacturing Systems Engineering and a Batchelor’s of Engineering in Industrial Engineering at Korea University.
