Towards the goal to be a roboticist.


Rämistrasse 101

8092 Zürich

I am currently a master’s student in Robotics, Systems and Control advised by Prof. Marco Hutter at ETH Zurich. My research goal is to automate mobile robot navigation with visual inputs. Specifically, I am interested in

  1. learning useful representations to encode task-related objects
  2. increasing the robustness of neural networks against unseen objects and unpredictable system errors
  3. incorporating safety constraints into reinforcement learning algorithms

I am now conducting my master’s thesis under the supervision of Prof. Amir Zamir at Visual Intelligence and Learning Lab, EPFL. Before that, I undertook a research internship supervised by Prof. Dengxin Dai at Vision for Autonomous Systems, Max Planck Institute for Informatics. I also did a student internship advised by Prof. Davide Scaramuzza at Robotics and Perception Group, University of Zurich. Besides, I finished my semester project under the supervision of Prof. Marco Hutter at Robotic Systems Lab, 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 2%), Comprehensive Excellence Award (top 10%), and so on.

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


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.
