Robotics and Soft Body Manipulation
I am currently a fifth-year Ph.D. student advised by Prof. Hao Su at the Computer Science & Engineering (CSE), University of California, San Diego. My general research interests cover reinforcement learning, generative models, robotics and soft body manipulation.
I have got my bachelor's degree at Tsinghua University, where I worked at the Machine Intelligence Group, advised by Prof. Chongjie Zhang. I spent most of my time being an intern at Megvii Inc. (Face++). During the spring of 2017, I was a visiting student at the University of Michigan, advised by Prof. Jia Deng. I was a summer intern at MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab working with Chuang Gan from 2020 to 2022.
