Short Biography

I am a PhD student at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and a research assistant at Robot Learning and Interaction Group (RLI), Idiap Research Institute, supervised by Dr. Sylvain Calinon. My research interests lie in optimal control and machine learning for robotics.


I obtained my Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China in 2017, and Master degree in Mechanical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China in 2020. I have also been a visiting student at ETH Zurich (09/2019-03/2020) and Stanford University (05/2020-10/2020), working on learning-based control for in-hand manipulation.
