Jimin Rhim



Jimin Rhim is a postdoctoral research fellow at the McGill Responsible Autonomy & Intelligent System Ethics (RAISE) lab. Her research interests include human-robot interaction, AI and robot ethics, positive technology, and cyberpsychology. As a human-centered roboticist, her research goal is to address the complete life cycle of robotics with social and ethical impacts on society. This process includes uncovering unforeseen socio-technological issues towards the deployment and regulations to shape sustainable adoption of robots and intelligent systems into society. She investigates both conceptual and computational challenges in robotic acceptance, trust, and safety by using interdisciplinary research approaches to bridge the gap between theory and practical implementation. Further, her doctoral thesis was selected as one of the top research highlights of KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) in 2019 in the Information Technology sector.
