Sookwan Han

I'm interested in 3 things:

1. Interstellar travel: to extend human history on a millenial scale
2. Generalizable robots: making low birth-rate problems not a problem (especially in Korea) by solving the challenges of inefficient workforce distribution
3. Sustaining academia: keeping exploratory stance of human society instead of converging to exploitative practices

Tbh, these are ambitious goals. So I'm solving various subproblems to achieve those.

Hello! I am an undergraduate student at Seoul National University, majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I am currently fulfilling my national duty as a soldier in the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF).

Feel free to contact me for coffee-chat or collaboration (on research, projects, etc.)!!!
