I am a Ph.D. candidate of Computer Science at Columbia University where I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Hod Lipson. I also work closely with Professor Carl Vondrick and Professor Shuran Song
My research aims at developing robots and machines that learn, act and improve by perceiving the complex and dynamic world. I seek methods to build models of the embodied self, models of other agents, and models of the physical world. My research often relies on the natural and unlabeled sensory inputs from multiple modalities. Ultimately, I hope that robots and machines can equip with high-level cognitive skills to assist people and unleash human creativity.
My research is sometimes best described by brief videos and animations. Here are some of them. If you are interested in more details, please see full publication list.
