I am a post-docotoral researcher at the Robotics, Perception and Learning Group, KTH Royal Institute of Technology. My role in the group is co-leading the research direction of deformable object manipulation by co-supervising PhD students and doing my own research. The interests lie in the intersection of robotics and machine learning. I am enthusiastic about finding and integrating problem structures, such as task representation, dynamical systems and optimization-based control, to facilitate learning-based robotics. I believe this would be a promising path towards greater robot autonomy and intelligence, which are necessary for robots to closely serve or work with humans.
I obtained my PhD from EPFL and IST, University of Lisbon under the supervision of Prof. Aude Billard, Prof. Ana Paiva and Prof. Francisco S. Melo. Prior to that, I completed my master and bachelor study in Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I also worked as a software engineer in Siemens.
