Chung Hyuk Park Faculty Member

Positions

Dr. Chung Hyuk Park is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at The George Washington University (GW). Dr. Park’s Assistive Robotics and Tele-Medicine (ART-Med) Lab studies the collaborative innovation between human intelligence and robotic technology, integrating human-robot interaction, machine learning, computer vision, haptics, and telepresence robotics. The current and future research topics are focused on the following three main themes: Multi-modal human-robot interaction and robotic assistance for individuals with disabilities or special needs, Robotic learning and humanized intelligence, and Tele-medical robotic assistance. In the first research topic, the impacts of multi-modal feedback are studied on the aspects of human-robot interaction and its application in assistive scenarios, such as telepresence for individuals with visual impairments or emotionally and socially interactive robotic systems for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In the second line of research, the computational methodologies of machine learning are investigated on the aspect of robotic learning of human behaviors and intelligence. Through the last research goal, novel methodologies for utilizing robotic systems in biomedical applications are being researched, from simple care-giving tasks towards intelligent surgical assistance and training systems. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012. He is the lead-PI for a NRI - NIH project (#R01 HD082914), a GW CDRF grant, and a CTSI-CN grant. He developed new courses such as “Principles of Assistive Robotics” and “Socially Assistive Robotics and Interactive Learning” at GW.
