Career Profile

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). I received the Ph.D. degree from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore in 2019 and Bachelor degree from Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) in 2014. I was a senior researcher in Tencent. My research interests include robot perception, vision, and machine learning.

Open Source Projects [GitHub]

Git Helper - This project is extremely helpful when you use Git, especially in Ubuntu. After simple installation, the tedious leading path in bash environment will be clear. It also reminds your location, modification, and current branch. It has improved my working efficiency dramatically, thus I recommend this project to all Linux users!
Thesis LaTex Template - This thesis Latex temaplate is designed according to the new submission guidelines of Nanyang Technological University (NTU). It should be useful for both Master and Ph.D students. This version has been verified by the NTU library.
Range-based Localization - To enable fast and accurate localization for micro-robots in GPS-denied environment, we design and implement the range-based localization algorithm using the Graph Optimization Approach. This framework is compitable with ROS and flexible for multi-sensor fusion. This code has been tested for the ultra-wideband(UWB) technology.
Formation/Rendezvous for multi-agent - This ROS package provides a controller for formation and rendezvous using multi-drone. It is designed based on the fastest hunting and surrounding direction relative to a moving target. You may visualize the convergence using RVIZ and Gazebo. You may also test other controllers by modifying a few lines of codes.
