I am an imcoming Assistant Professor at Duke University where I will be leading the General Robotics Lab. I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Columbia Univesity with Hod Lipson. My research focuses on Robotics, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. I am also broadly interested in AI for Science.
I am interested in developing "generalist robots" that learn, act and improve by perceiving and interacting with the complex and dynamic world. Ultimately, I hope that robots and machines can equip with high-level cognitive skills to assist people and unleash human creativity.
I am looking for student researchers and postdocs to join my lab at Duke (ME, CS, EE, Appl.Math. & Phys.) in July 2022! Please feel free to email me to discuss options. Also see Join Us page for more information.
My research is sometimes best described by brief videos and animations. Here are some of them. If you are interested in more details, please see full publication list.
