Chung Min Kim

I am a first-year PhD student in AUTOLab at UC Berkeley, where I am advised by Ken Goldberg. I received my dual B.S. degree in EECS (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) and Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley in 2021. I am currently funded by the NSF GRFP. 🐻

My research interests include computer vision and robotics. I'm interested in connecting large vision-language models with 3D representations (e.g., NeRFs). My goal is to apply these models to robots in the real world, which is challenging due to lack of structure and large variability in the real world. 🦾

ICRA 2022 - IEEE / arXiv / Video / Code / Website

IPC-GraspSim is a novel grasp simulator that extends Incremental Potential Contact (IPC) to model both the dynamics and the deformation of compliant jaw tips during robot grasping.
