Dr. Hyoung-Ki Lee Joins the Doyley Lab

September 2, 2019

Welcome to Dr. Hyong-Ki Lee who recently joined the Doyley Lab as a postdoctoral research associate. Dr. Lee received his PhD degree in Robotics from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, South Korea in 1998. In 1999, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the AIST Mechanical Engineering Lab in Japan. In 2000, he joined the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology and developed vacuum cleaning robots with localization function as part of a home service robot project. Dr. Lee conducted research in simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) for home robots, fusing different kinds of sensors (inertial sensors, cameras, range finders, etc.), and developed new low-cost sensor modules such as a microeletromecanical system (MEMS) gyro sensor module and a structured light range finder. Since 2011, Dr. Lee has developed ultrasound machines with a strong focus on elastography (shear wave elastography and strain elastography). He has successfully commercialized the elastography function in Samsung’s premium ultrasound scanners.
