Hoang-Vu Phan, Ph.D.,
Hoang-Vu Phan received the B.S. degree in aerospace engineering from the Ho Chi Minh city University of Technology, Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam in 2010, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biomimetics and intelligent microsystems from Konkuk University, Seoul, South Korea in 2012 and 2017, respectively. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. Prior to joining EPFL, he was a research assistant professor at the Department of Smart Vehicle Engineering, Konkuk University, Seoul, Korea (2017-2020). His research interests include biologically inspired flying robots, multimodal locomotion robots, and insect flight. He has published more than 25 SCI/SCIE journal papers, and more than 30 conference papers and abstracts. During his research, he released the 16 g KUBeetle robot, which is an insect-like, tailless, two-winged, hover-capable, flapping-wing robot that can sustain a long flight. He is currently the associate editor of International Journal of Micro Air Vehicles and editorial board member of Mathematical Problems in Engineering.
