Ryu's research interests include integrated planning and control of autonomous systems such as unmanned ground vehicles, modeling and control of nonlinear dynamic systems, development of intelligent assistive devices based on mobile robotic systems and robotic machine operation software development. His research has involved modeling, simulation, controller development, programming, fabrication, and experimental validation of developed systems. His current research project is studying mechanics and simulation, motion planning, control theory, and experimental validation of dynamically dexterous robots. The goal is to develop theory to support automatic planning and feedback control of dynamic manipulation modes such as rolling, sliding, throwing and catching, and juggling.

Dr. Ji-Chul Ryu is currently a Post-doctoral Fellow working with prof. Kevin Lynch in the robotic manipulation group. He received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Delaware in 2009 and his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), respectively.
From 1999 to 2004, he was a software research engineer at companies including Samsung Electronics, where he developed various types of operation programs for automated machines. He received the 2007 MSC Simulation Software Award from the ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conference (IDETC). He is a member of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and the ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division.
