About
I am an Assistant Professor in the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences at Tsinghua University. Before joining the faculty, I was a postdoctoral associate at MIT working with Julie Shah and the Interactive Robotics group in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) on studying robotics with applications on manufacturing. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science under the supervision of Victor Lesser from University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2011.
Announcement
Research assistant positions are available in the field of AI and Robotics. If you are interested, please drop me an email.
Research Interests
My research focuses on machine learning and planning for decision making and control, developing models and methods that can endow machines with greater autonomy and intelligence. My research interests includes:
  • Machine Learning (Reinforcement Learning, Multi-Agent Learning, Transfer Learning)
  • Robotics (Human-Robot Collaboration, Robot Learning, Task and Motion Planning)
  • Multi-Agent Systems (Coordination, Learning, Decision Making under Uncertainty)
