Seong Ho Yeon

Research Assistant
  • Biomechatronics

I am a PhD candidate in the Biomechatronics group at MIT Media Lab advised by Dr. Hugh M. Herr. I am also a Graduate Research Fellow at K. Lisa Yang Center for Bionics at MIT. Prior to my phD study, I've recevied M.S. in Media Arts and Sciences (MAS) at MIT, and I've received B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 2016. During the time at Georgia Tech, I've received Roger P. Webb. ECE Senior Scholar Award.

My research interests lie in the intersection of bionics, robotics, and neural interfaces. The focus of my PhD research is to enable versatile and seamless bionic applications by improving and expanding neural interfaces modalities and developing superior control architectures. The interdisciplinary journey of my PhD study has allowed me to encompass embedded system design, digital signal processing, modern robotics and optimization, and even neurosciences.
