Dr. Soh Gim Song is an Associate Professor in the Engineering Product Development Pillar at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. He is a core founding member of the Robotics Innovation Laboratory and the director of the Articulated Systems and Biomechanics group. He obtained his MSc and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Irvine (UCI), where he researched and developed innovative computer-aided design software tools for the invention of articulated mechanical systems. He had taught courses in the field of machine theory, computer-aided design, and manufacturing, as well as engineering design processes. He was a visiting Scholar in the department of Mechanical Engineering of MIT and an Associate Research Scientist at the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology. Currently, he is serving as an Associate Editor for the ASME Journal of Mechanism and Robotics, the Honors and Awards Subcommittee Chair for the ASME Mechanism and Robotics Committee, a Member of the IFToMM Technical Committee for Robotics and Mechatronics, and the Chairperson of Singapore Committee for the Technologies of Machines and Mechanisms.
