I am a doctoral student in computer science based in Zurich, Switzerland 🇨🇭. From 2019, I am a scientific assistant of the Computational Robotics Lab, ETH Zurich, under the supervision of Prof. Stelian Coros.
The goal of my research is to create legged robots that exhibit natural and animal-like behaviors. Thus, my research interests are broad ranging from legged locomotion control to computational models of character animation.
Apart from my professional bio, I am originally from Seoul, South Korea 🇰🇷. Describing myself, I am a video game fan, and a classical music lover.
I am currently looking for self-motivated Master students (from ETH or students from any other institutes who can visit ETH Zurich by an available exchanging program) who are passionate to join our journey to build a bio-inspired legged robot. If you are intested in participating in one of our 3-month (14-weeks, part-time) or 6-month (full-time) research projects at Computational Robotics Lab, please see more details here if you are interested.
The Computational Robotics Lab is looking for a talented mechatronics engineer who has a strong background in designing, and building a robotic system. If you are interested in joing CRL as a part-time or a full-time research engineer, please contact us through
