Brief BioI am a PhD student at The Robotics Institute of CMU School of Computer Science, co-advised by Drew Bagnell and Matt Mason.
I am spending this summer internship at the Manipulation Group at Toyota Research Institute with Russ Tedrake and Siyuan Feng . Before that, I was an intern at GoogleX Self-driving Car team (now Waymo) and Turi.
I received my Master of Robotics in Dec. 2013 from CMU and B.S. in Computer Science in June. 2012 from Chien-Shiung Wu Honors College, Southeast University.
Current Research InterestsI study the mechanics, planning and control for contact-rich robotic manipulation. Physics-based reasoning has been the central theme recently. I used to do a bit of machine learning and discrete optimization.
Current Research Projects
Past Research ProjectsMy master's research projects explored provable techniques for near-optimal algorithms for list prediction, with applications in document summarization, spatially fine-grained object detection, manipulator trajectory library selection.
