Sangwoon Kim

Robotics Ph.D. Student at MIT

  • I am interested in full-time employment starting in 2024 Summer (flexible) upon completing my Ph.D. at MIT. Please let me know if you are interested in working with me.

I am a Ph.D. student in the MechE department at MIT, advised by Professor Alberto Rodriguez. I am interested in robot manipulation and automation.

Previously, I received my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, where I worked with Dr. Brian Anthony. I also received my B.S. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Seoul National University.
