About me

I am a thesis-based master student at Prof. Lijun Sun’s group in Department of Civil Engineering, McGill University. I work closely with Prof.Hsiu-Chin Lin in computer science department on robotics motion planning. I will join Mila in Fall 2020 as a research intern, work with Prof. Laurent Charlin.

I received my bachelor degree in vehicle engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology. During my undergraduate study, I was a visiting student researcher at Berkeley Deep Drive, University of California Berkeley, supervised by Dr. Ching-Yao Chan. Prior to joining McGill, I worked as research intern in L4 automated driving group at Momenta.ai, supervised by Dr. Jie Chen. I also worked as research intern in based model group at Megvii Technology, supervised by Dr. Xiangyu Zhang.

My current research centers on the area of reinforcement learning and deep neural network, developing innovative methodologies and applications to address safety, efficiency, and resilience issues in multi-agent systems decision and control.

Research Interests
