About Me

I am a fourth year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). I work in the Robot Exploration Lab and the Biorobotics Lab in the Robotics Institude. My research advisors are Professor Zachary Manchester and Professor Howie Choset. Currently, I am focusing on state estimation for complex robotics systems.

I obtained my B.Eng in Computer Engineering and M.Phil in Electronic and Computer Engineering from Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST) in 2012 and 2015. During my undergraduate study I was the team leader of HKUST Robotics team for three years. This team represented Hong Kong to compete in ABU Robocon. During my graduate study I was the team leader of HKUST IARC team in 2014. The team performed very well in IARC competition, an aerial vehicle competition that has more than 20 years history. Some of my master research work contributed to the flight control algorithm on DJI product autopilot A3.

Before joining the CMU, I worked in DJI for 3 years. It’s my honor to work with this company to change the world with drone technology. Starting from algorithm engineer, I ended up as one of project technical directors leading the research and development of many famous drone and robotics products. Projects that I directly involved are: Inspire 1, Phantom 3, Phantom 4, Matrice 100, Mavic, and various robotics products. The research drone platform Matrice 100 developed by me and my team is one of the most popular drone research platforms in recent years.

Other than robotics research, I am also enthusiastic about robotics education. At DJI I am working on an educational project called RoboMaster. In this project, we create different opportunities for students to work on practical robots and be recognized by the entire society. Many famous international medias have covered my work on these projects.
