Bio: I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong, fortunately supervised by Prof. Ping Luo and co-advised by Prof. Wenping Wang and Prof. Xiaoou Tang. Previously I obtained the M.Phil Degree from Tsinghua University in June 2021,under the supervision of Prof. Bo Cheng and Prof. Shengbo Li at the Intelligent Driving Laboratory and Prof. Jianyu Chen at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences in Tsinghua University.

Research Interests: Embodied AI, Reinforcement Learning, Representation Learning and Autonomous Driving. My goal is to build a general embodied AI system that can learn optimal policy efficiently and can be generalized well in unseen tasks and environments.

News: I am looking for some internship collaborators. Self-motivated masters and undergraduates are welcome to work together. Please find some details in this link.
