Our research interests are in the field of dynamic system design, analysis, and control with special emphasis on mechatronic and robotic applications.

The design and control of multi-energy domain coupled mechatronic systems is different from the conventional dynamic systems from the various points of view since their functionalities are significantly affected by the highly coupled energy transport. Our research for the coupled multi-energy domain physical systems and our challenge for the development of a unified modeling and control provide graduate students with deep information and insight on mechatronic dynamic systems.

Our attempts will build up a platform leading the modern robotic technology. Current on-goint researches are,
