-Dr Chin-Hsing Kuo received his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from King’s College London, UK in 2011. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in the [[https://​eis.uow.edu.au/​mmm/​index.html|School of Mechanical, Materials, Mechatronic and Biomedical Engineering (MMMB)]] at the University of Wollongong (UOW), Australia. Prior to his appointment at UOW, he was Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan Tech), Taiwan from February 2011 to January 2019.  
  
-[{{ :​people:​170424im_sloganb.png?​180|}}]Dr Kuo’s research ​interests are focused on the //**interactive mechanisms and robots**//, where the motion and force of a mechanical or robot system jointly interact with the user and environment. Along with this, he has intensive multidisciplinary research and industrial collaboration experience encompassing the innovative design for industrial robots and biomechanical systems with applications in medical devices, assistive technologies,​ and surgical robotics. He received several prestigious national and international awards including the ASME Freudenstein/​General Motors Young Investigator Award, being this award’s only Asian recipient thus far in its history from 1996, and the Ta-You Wu Memorial Award from Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology, the most distinguished national honour for young scholars in all disciplines for excellence in scientific and technological research. He has also received the Best Paper Awards of the 3rd IFToMM Asian MMS Conference and Best Paper Award of the First ASME/IFToMM International Conference on Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots (ReMAR) Conference. \\ +[{{ :​people:​170424im_sloganb.png?​180|}}]
