I'm currently pursuing a Ph.D. at Stanford University, working with Prof. Mac Schwager in the Multi-Robot Systems Lab. My research interest is multi-robot systems, for which I design distributed planning and control algorithms that enable a group of intelligent robots to either collaborate on a common task, or compete among adversarial agents. I received my M.S. from Boston University in 2016, and a B.S. from Beihang University in 2013.
"Some robots I designed and built since 2010."
An accessible and high-fidelity test bed for studying the iteractions among multiple autonomous cars.
Built for scalable airborne robotic swarm applications, especially for cooperative aerial manipulation, package delievry and so on.
OuijaBot was originally designed for a multi-robot mobile manipulation experiment, and later used as a general low-cost research robot platform in the lab. Some of its features include:
A group of robots that collectively tranport a heavy load without communication by locally measuring the velocity of the object and performing force feedback control.
A biomimetic fish robot testbed that mimics the boxfish (also known as ostraciiform fish). It features:
A heavily handcrafted modular robot system (12 modules were built).
"Research opportunity for undergrad students."
Normally every year I have the time to advise 1-2 undergrad student(s) to work with me in the lab. Undergraduate research is an excellent way to learn hands-on skills and build up a solid resume. I had wonderful experience in both serving as a mentor and working as a mentee. If you feel interested, please click the button below to learn more, and email me to check open positions.
"Feel free to drop me a line."
