Welcome to my academic homepage. I am a graduate student in
Computer Science at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
My research interests primarily focus on endowing robots and other agent-based systems with advanced learning and reasoning architectures, so as to understand and generalize in the complex physical and psychological world dynamics. Some of my research keywords can be found below:
Knowledge and AI: Concept learning, Commonsense reasoning, Task planning
Behaviour Modeling and Learning: (Inverse) Reinforcement learning, Multiagent systems
Representation Learning: Energy-based generative model, Multi-modal learning
[06/2020] Will work as a research intern at this summer.
Google Brain Robotics
[11/2019] Two papers on reinforcement learning from demonstrations and causal learning are accepted to AAAI 2020 (1 oral + 1 poster).
[09/2019] One paper on imitation learning from observations is accepted to as NeurIPS 2019 spotlight.
