Short CV

Dongheui Lee is currently an assistant professor (since October 2009) at the Institute of Automatic Control Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Technische Universität München, Munich, Germany. She is the head of Dynamic Human Robot Interaction for Automation System Lab. She received her B.S. and M.S degree at the department of mechanical engineering, Kyunghee University, Korea, in 2001 and 2003, respectively. She worked as a research scientist at the Advanced Robotics Research Center, Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in Korea from 2001 to 2004. In 2007, she received her PhD degree at the department of Mechano‐Informatics, the University of Tokyo, Japan. After receiving PhD degree she joined the center of Information and Robot Technology at the University of Tokyo as a project assistant professor.
