About me

My name is Pongsiri Borijindakul, aka “Kobe Kang”, a Ph.D. student at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA). I’m interested in physics, metrology, haptic & tactile sensing, machine learning, embodied artificial intelligence, neural control, robotics, biomechanics, and bio-inspired robotics. I’m now working on Bio-inspired smart foot with my robot (The Black Panther) at NEUTRON Laboratory under the supervision of professor Poramate Manoonpong, one of the best professors in the world. I intended to finish my Ph.D. in 2022.

Besides, I’m fascinated with sports, especially tennis, basketball, skateboarding, bodybuilding, and boxing. If readers are in Chiang Mai and wanted to know where
to play these sports, feel free to contact me.

Describe me in 3 words :

Passionate – If I want something whether it’s hard or I’ve never done before I don’t care, I’ll go get it, period.

Ambitious – I have never given up on my dreams. I’m going to fight my hardest for it.

Honest – I hate liars, I have never cheated on my work and experiments.
