Hello and welcome! I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. I am very fortunate to be co-advised by Prof. Ufuk Topcu and Prof. David Fridovich-Keil. My research interests lie in theoretical foundations and deployable practical decision-making and control strategies for autonomous systems in dynamic and uncertain environments. I am currently focused on intelligent, safe interactions of robots with other agents and efficient robot control policy learning.
I obtained a master’s degree (the highest cum laude distinction) in Robotics from the Department of Cognitive Robotics (CoR) at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, where I was very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Javier Alonso-Mora. My master’s thesis was on game-theoretic motion planning for multi-agent systems. Before that, I received my bachelor’s degree in Automotive Engineering from Tongji University, Shanghai. During my senior year, I studied as a visiting undergraduate student at the Graz Univerisity of Technology, Austria.
