Magneto-mechatronics and its applications

Magneto-mechatronics is a synergistic integration of magnetic, mechanical, and electrical engineering for innovative medical and industrial applications, particularly medical applications that require convenience, rapidity, and safety in diagnosis and therapy.

The primary purpose of magnetic medical devices is to provide new medical solutions as well as interdisciplinary approach combining engineering and medicine. Because magnetic technologies have potentiality and remarkable features for wireless control, battery-free operation, and miniaturization, I am focusing on developing a magnetically actuated multi-scale robot systems for minimally invasive treatment, a wireless blood pump, and an implantable power generator. In addition, I am studying new electromagnetic and magnetic applications, such as a novel sensing system, magnetic therapy, and nano medicine.
