Welcome to my academic homepage. I am a first-year graduate student in Computer Science at
Prof. University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) .
I also closely collaborate with
Prof. Song-Chun Zhu .
Before coming to UCLA, I finished my undergraduate study in Computer Science with honors at
Ying Nian Wu . Tsinghua University
My research interests primarily focus on endowing robots and other agent-based systems with advanced learning and reasoning architectures, so as to understand the complex physical and psychological world dynamics. Some of my research keywords can be found below:
Cognitive Modeling: Physical and mental reasoning, Human-AI/Robot collaboration
Learning Behaviours: Reinforcement learning, Imitation learning, Preference-based learning
Multi-Modal Sensing: Visual sensing, Tactile sensing, Language grounding
[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.
