Young-Ho Cho

Young-Ho Cho received the Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley for his electrostatic actuator and crab-leg microflexure research completed in December, 1990.
From 1987 to 1991, he worked as a Post-Graduate Researcher (1987-1990) and a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (1991) of the Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center (BSAC) at the University of California at Berkeley.  In August 1991, Dr. Cho moved to KAIST, where he is currently a Professor in the Department of BioSystems and in the Department of Mechanical Engineering as well as the Director of Digital Nanolocomotion Center.
Dr. Cho's research interests are focused on the Nano/Micro Electro Mechanical Systems with bio-inspired actuators, detectors and processors for non-electrical information carriers or substances in nano/micro-regime.  In Korea, he has served as the Chair of MEMS Division in Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Chair of Steering Committee for Korea National MEMS Programs, and the Committee for Korea National Nanotechnology Programs.  Dr. Cho has also served for international technical society as the General Co-Chair of IEEE MEMS Conference 2003, the Program Committee of IEEE Optical MEMS Conference, the Committee of Power MEMS Conference, and the Chief Delegate of the Republic of Korea in World Micromachine Summit.  Dr. Cho is a member of IEEE and ASME.
