About me

Daehyung Park is an assistant professor in the School of Computing at KAIST and leading the Robust Intelligence and Robotics (RIRO) Lab. His research interests include learning- and planning-based robotic manipulation algorithms.

Park has experience in a broad range of robotics in both academic and industrial areas. He received a B.S. at Osaka University (advisor: Dr. Tatsuo Arai). He received an M.S. at the University of Southern California, where he researched movement primitives (advisor: Dr. Stefan Schaal). After earning his master’s degree, he worked as a robotics researcher at the Mechatronics R&D Center of Samsung Electronics Inc. He received a Ph.D. at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he researched a multimodal execution monitor for assistive robots (advisor: Dr. Charles C. Kemp). He also worked as a postdoctoral associate in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working with Dr. Nicholas Roy in Robust Robotics Group.
