Research Focus

Dr. Park directs the Assistive Robotics and Tele-Medicine (ART-Med) laboratory where his research focuses on collaborative innovation between human intelligence and robotic technology, integrating machine learning, computer vision, haptics and telepresence robotics. His current research projects are categorized into three topics: 1) Multi-modal human-robot interaction and robotic assistance for individuals with disabilities or special needs, 2) Robotic learning and humanized intelligence, and 3) Tele-medical robotic assistance and communication. His project related to autism research features developing an interactive robotic framework for providing personalized interaction scheme with children with ASD through social and emotional interaction using music- and gesture-based robotic agents, where he is trying to provide larger bandwidth of interaction modality in behavioral and social learning of children with ASD. Dr. Park also collaborates with ANDI faculty in collaborative projects that uses highly interactive robotic systems to prime the neural-circuit-level mechanisms that support responsiveness to behaviorally-based therapies for social communication interventions.
