About me

I am currently a research scientist at Tencent AI Lab & Robotics X, working on deep reinforcement learning in Game AI and Robotics. I received my Ph.D. degree in Machine Learning in September 2020. My Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Volker Tresp. The Ph.D. program lasts for four years, which is a joint program between the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and Siemens AG. Since 2020, I have research collaboration with Prof. Pieter Abbeel on reinforcement learning. In 2019, I did a six-month research internship, supervised by Wei Xu at the General AI lab of Horizon Robotics in California, USA. My research interests include machine learning, especially deep learning and reinforcement learning, and their application to computer vision, natural language processing, and robotics. In particular, I am interested in improving the efficiency of current reinforcement learning algorithms and apply them to solve real-world tasks.

Prior to joining Siemens AG & LMU Munich, I received my master’s degree in Robotics, Cognition, Intelligence from the Technical University of Munich in 2016. I also spent seven months at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) conducting my master’s thesis. Under the supervision of Haider Ali and Patrick van der Smagt, I worked on deep learning for action recognition in 3D videos.
