Dr Yohan Noh
Lecturer in Manufacturing Engineering


He received his first B.Sc. degreefrom the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Seoul National University of Scienceand Technology, Korea (2002) and his second B.Sc. degree from the Department ofElectrical Engineering from Yonsei University, Korea (2004). He did his M.Sc. and Ph.D. atthe Department of Science and Engineering (robotics), Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan in2007 and 2011, respectively. After this, he worked as a research associate in Roboticswithin the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics, King's College London.During his PhD and Postdoctoral studies in the UK and Japan, he studied and proposed agreat number of the robotic systems for use in medicine and healthcare in Japan, Korea,and the UK. His work has resulted in more than seventy peer-reviewed papers includingsixteen journal papers and more than seventy papers in top journals and conferences ofrobotics. He has eleven published patents so far.He has been fortunate to have the opportunity of involvement in commercialisationprocess of a number of joint projects between academia and industry. Being ambitious tolay out a research direction which considers commercialisation of the developed system inthe beginning of a project, led to successful commercialisation of the projects and therespective products are now being sold in international market.He has facilitated many collaborative activities between robotics groups in the UK, EU, andJapan through domestic and international joint projects (EU-project STIFF-FLOP, Grant No.287728), (Wellcome Trust IEH project iFIND, Grant No.102431), and (Robotics AdvancedMedical Cluster, Japan), and have been an active member of the robotics community (IEEERAS, EMBS, ASME, RSJ, JSCAS), and helped in the organisation of RSJ, ROMANSY, ICCAS,ROBIO, ICRA, and EMBC conferences since 2008.
