Welcome to my academic homepage. I am a first-year graduate student in Computer Science at
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
Prof. Song-Chun Zhu
Prof. Tao Gao.
Before coming to UCLA, I finished my undergraduate study in Computer Science with honors at
My research interests primarily focus on machine learning in general and its application in robot autonomy and other agent-based systems. Some of my research keywords can be found below:
- Skill Learning: Reinforcement Learning, Imitation Learning, Preference-based Learning
- Learning Cooperation: Human-AI/Robot Collaboration, Multi-Agent Coordination
- Multi-Modal Sensing: Visual Sensing, Tactile Sensing, Audio Sensing
[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 NeurIPS 2019 as spotlight.
[06/2019] My B.Eng. thesis won the Outstanding Thesis Award at Tsinghua University.
