I’m a fourth year PhD student in Human-Centered Autonomy Lab in Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, advised by Professor Katherine Driggs-Campbell. My research primarily focuses on autonomous navigation in crowded and interactive environments using reinforcement learning. And I am also involved in projects including driving style estimation, visual-language robot control, and driving modeling using imitation learning. My long term goal is to enable robots to interact and collaborate with people in daily life.
Previously, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in May 2018.
