Jiawei Fu

An interdisciplinary student researcher on computer vision and robotics


Rämistrasse 101

8092 Zürich

I am currently a master’s student in Robotics, Systems and Control advised by Prof. Marco Hutter at ETH Zurich.

Prior to my master’s study, I received my bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (Elite Program) at Tsinghua University. During my undergraduate study, I received various awards and scholarships, such as National Scholarship (top 1%), Comprehensive Excellence Award (top 1%), and so on.

My research interests lie in two folds:

  1. Vision-based agile robot control
  2. Robot design for various tasks and environments

Research experience with vision-based agile robot control

I worked on training a deep sensorimotor policy for vision-based autonomous drone racing under the supervision of Prof. Davide Scaramuzza at Robotics and Perception Group, University of Zurich.

Research experience with robot design for various tasks and environments

I am working on building the computational framework of morphology optimization for visual sensor parameters under the supervision of Prof. Amir Zamir at Visual Intelligence and Learning Lab, EPFL.

Prior to that, I worked on building the optimization framework for computational design of ANYmal-on-Wheels under the supervision of Prof. Marco Hutter at Robotic Systems Lab, ETH Zurich.

Research experience with hardware

I worked on establish the electrical and mechanical system to build a multi-sensor system for autonomous driving under the supervision of Prof. Dengxin Dai at Vision for Autonomous Systems, Max Planck Institute for Informatics.

Prior to that, I worked on deisgn and manufacture the components of hardware development for humanoid soccer robot under the supervision of Prof. Jiwen Zhang at Institute of Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University.

For more information about my experience, please refer to my CV page or my one-page CV (PDF).


Jun 30, 2023 One first-authored paper has been accepted to IROS 2023.
Dec 1, 2022 I will join Visual Intelligence and Learning Lab for my master’s thesis.
Apr 1, 2022 I will join Vision for Autonomous Systems as a research intern.
Sep 1, 2021 I will join Robotics and Perception Group as a student intern.
