I am currently a fifth year PhD student in Robotics Institute, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, advised by J. Andrew Bagnell. I also get invaluable advice from Geoff Gordon and Byron Boots.

I am generally interested in fundamental and applied research in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and robotics, with a focus on sequential decision making, Reinforcement Learning, and Imitation Learning. Before coming to CMU, I was a master student at Department of Computer Science, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, advised by Ron Alterovitz. My research at UNC-CH focused on motion planning for medical robotics applications. Before that, I got my Bachelors of Science from Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Cananda, and Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China (SFU & ZU Dual Degree Program).
