RA-L and ICRA 2018 - Congratulations to Han and Nick
for having their journal publication titled "Efficient, High-Quality
Stack Rearrangement" accepted by RA-L! The work will also be presented at ICRA.
Short Bio - I am an Assistant Professor leading the Algorithmic Robotics and Control Lab in the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers. Prior to joining Rutgers, I spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at MIT CSAIL with Daniela Rus in the Distributed Robotics Lab. The first year of the two-year postdoctoral appointment was joint at Boston University with Mac Schwager in the Multirobot Systems Lab.
I obtained my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working with Steven M. LaValle. After defending my thesis, I stayed briefly at the Coordinated Science Laboratory as a postdoctoral researcher working with Soon-Jo Chung and Petros G. Voulgaris.
I completed my undergraduate study at the University of Science and Technology of China.
Prospective Graduate Students - I am always looking to working with self-driven students who are interested in fundamental and/or applied research in robotics, control, and optimization. If you are interested in joining my group, please read some of our recent papers and see whether there are topics you find interesting. If that is the case, send me an email and tell me why you are interested in the work that our group does.
Undergraduate Students - My lab has openings for undergraduate researchers. My prerequisites for undergraduate researcher are: (1) you must have 8+ hours per week to devote to research for at least one semester and (2) you are comfortable with coding and debugging. For those of you who are interested, send me an email and attach (1) your code samples and (2) your current transcript. Note that the 8+ hours requirement does not apply to students looking to doing undergraduate thesis and independent study.
