ECE Departmental Seminar - Bioinspired Small Robotics for Biomedical Engineering

4:00pm - 5:00pm
Room 2515-16 (ECE Conference Rooms)

Micro/nano robots have attracted extensive interest in biomedical engineering owing to their great potential to work inside the body for diagnosis, drug delivery, minimally invasive surgery, and so on. In this talk, I’d like to share my ideas on the design and application of the bioinspired small robot for biomedical applications. This talk will start with a brief review of the development of micro/nano robotics followed by the trade-off and challenges to apply them in biomedical engineering. Then, I will introduce some potential solutions/efforts to address these existing challenges by giving some examples in our Lab, including the swimming microrobot, walking robot, and so on. I’d also like to share my own perspective on robotics and intelligence in biomedical engineering and discuss them with the audience.

Speakers / Performers:
Prof. Yajing SHEN
Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering

Yajing Shen received the B.S. (2005) and M.S. (2008) degrees from Xi’an Jiaotong University and the Ph.D. degree (2012) from Nagoya University, respectively. Before joining HKUST, he worked as an Assistant/Associate Professor at The City University of Hong Kong (2013-2022). His research interest is small/bioinspired robotics, intelligent robotic systems, and their applications, particularly in biomedical engineering. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed journal/conference papers, including the top multidisciplinary journal (e.g., Science Robotics, Nature Communications, PNAS), top specialized journal (e.g., IEEE Trans on Robotics), top international conference (e.g., ICRA, IROS), with widely reported by international media, e.g., Associated Press, Thomson Reuters, etc. He is a Senior Member of IEEE, Distinguish lecture of IEEE Robotic and Automation society, an Executive member of China Micro-nano Robot Society, China Coexisting-Cooperative-Cognitive Robot Society, and the Associate Editor of the flagging robotic journal IEEE Trans on Robotics (2019.7-). He is a recipient of the Best Manipulation Paper Award in IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Japan Chapter Young Award, the Big-on-Small Award at MARSS, Outstanding Supervisor Award in CityU, the Early Career Awards of Hong Kong UGC, the “National Excellent Young Scientist (Hong Kong & Macau)” for the topic “micro/nano robot”, etc.
