I am a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences (IIIS), Tsinghua University.
I was a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford Vision and Learning Lab (SVL) advised by Prof. Jiajun Wu. I obtained my Ph.D. in Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) advised by Prof. Trevor Darrell. I obtained my bachelor degree from Tsinghua University.
I am hiring self-motivated Postdocs, Ph.D. students, Undergrads, and Research Interns at Tsinghua (base: Beijing, Shanghai). See more details in Chinese here.
Please email me with your CV directly.
I support Slow Science.
I am interested in Embodied AI: Reinforcement Learning, Robotics, and Computer Vision/Touch. Specifically, my research focuses on modeling the dynamics of the world, leveraging/finding human priors for policy learning, and further enabling algorithms to learn in a sample-efficient manner and generalize to unseen scenarios. I am also interested in solving complex real robot applications with deep learning and reinforcement learning.
