Professor Sukyung (Sue) Park

KAITST, Soth Korea

Sukyung (Sue) Park is a professor in the department of Mechanical Engineering at KAIST, Korea. Her research interests are to understand human movement through the descriptive dynamics model that demonstrates movement mechanics and control, with an ultimate aim to develop wearable healthcare devices. Among a wide range of human movements, she is interested in walking, running, postural control, and sports activities including golf. Her recent studies focus on resolving the challenges of wearable devices for biomechanical variable prediction by integrating biomechanical knowledge with machine learning technology. She earned her BS. and MS. in Mechanical Engineering at KAIST and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School. Recently she served as the Advisor to the President for Science and Technology at the Office of the President.
