Hao Su

Associate Professor

Dr. Su is interested in design, learning, and control of soft robots, surgical robots and humanoid robots. He was a Research Scientist working on surgical robots at Philips Research North America, and then a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. Prior to joining NC State, he was Irwin Zahn Endowed Assistant Professor at City University of New York, City College.

He received National Science Foundation CAREER Award, Toyota Mobility Challenge Discover Award, Best Medical Robotics Paper Runner-up Award in the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, and Philips Innovation Transfer Award. He is PI for projects supported by NSF, NIH R01, National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research, and Toyota Mobility Foundation. In addition to research and teaching, Dr. Su enjoys outdoor activities including jogging and hiking with his family.
