Sung Kyun Kim, Ph.D.
Robotics Technologist
(Full description>>)

Biography (more>>)
Sung Kyun Kim is a Robotics Technologist with a research focus on functional autonomy of robotic systems in stochastic environments. Specifically, he is interested in sequential decision making under motion/sensing uncertainty where the planner should take into account control and state estimation.

Sung has broad experience in robotics, including surgical manipulator design, redundant arm-hand system control, and mobile manipulation planning. At JPL, he currently works on sampling autonomy for the Europa Lander mission, which requires a higher level of autonomy and efficiency due to its limited lifetime and communication capabilities.
