Dr. Hyunwoong Ko is an assistant professor in the School of Manufacturing Systems and Networks of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. He completed his Ph.D. in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in Sep. 2019 and worked at National Institute of Standards and Technology during his Ph.D. and Postdoctoral studies as a research associate until Sep. 2021.
His research is focused on data science, manufacturing science, and design science as well as the intersections between these three areas. His research aims at building foundations of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digitization for manufacturing and design. Such foundations help facilitate the integration between the disciplines of AI and Machine Learning, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Digital Twins at multiple, spatial-temporal scales in the context of advanced manufacturing such as Additive Manufacturing. Eventually, his research improves critical control and decision-making in manufacturing and design, like Design for Additive Manufacturing, In-Situ Monitoring and Control, and Ex-Situ Evaluation, using AI on emerging data and newfound knowledge from both virtual and physical systems.
