About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, co-advised by Dorsa Sadigh and Jeannette Bohg. Currently, I am working on AI for robotics in Intelligent and Interactive Autonomous Systems Group (ILIAD) and Interactive Perception and Robot Learning Lab (IPRL). I am broadly interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI), robot manipulation, human robot interaction, and multi-agent systems.

Before coming to Stanford, I received my B.S. degree from Tsinghua University in 2018. During my undergraduate years, I was fortunate to work in TSAIL Group under the supervision of Prof. Jun Zhu. I was also lucky to have the opportunities to work with Raquel Urtasun during an internship at University of Toronto.
