“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”

- Albert Einstein


Who am I ?

I am a research associate in Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Imperial College London. I am interested in fields related to Biologically Inspired Mobile Robot. I got my Master degree at Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Science in Beijing. I was supervised by Prof. Kui Yuan to work on human body tracking based on vision for sign language recognition. In April of 2003, I moved to UK and started my PhD study at University of Essex. My topic was mainly focused on biologically inspired autonomous robotic fish. With the supervision of Prof. Huosheng Hu, our team (Ian Dukes, Rob Knight, George Frances and me) successfully built the first autonomous robotic fish in the world. It was an amazing achievement and it was widely reported. After I graduated in 2007, I shifted my interest from hydrodynamic propulsion to human auditory system. Again, it was inspired by biological facts. I worked with Harry Erwin and Stefan Wermter from University of Sunderland, and Adrian Rees and David Perez-Gonzalez from University of Newcastle Upon Tyne. We developed a computational mammalian auditory system and applied for the sound localisation on mobile robots. From 2010, I moved to London and joined the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London. Here I am supported by Prof. Guang-Zhong Yang, Fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering, to extend my previous research closer to healthcare and clinical applications.
