• Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Sept 2017 to Oct, 2020)

  • Visiting Ph.D. Student, Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley (2018)

  • MS.C., Mechanical Engineering, Chinese Agricultural University (2015 to 2017)

  • BS.C., Mechanical Engineering, Beijing Information & Science Technology University (2011 to 2015)

I was born on 24th, Dec 1994 in Ganzhou, Jiangxi province in Chian where I spend 17 years before I start my Bachelor study in Beijing on 4th, Sept 2011. I got my Bachelor's degree from Beijing Information Science Technology University (BISTU) with the top 1 grades and best honor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering on 2th, July 2015. From junior, I start to code for small mobile robotics when I start my career in autonomous systems research! I start an internship in IACAS where I work with Professor Cao for one year during which I focused on designing a small intelligent manipulator for mobile robotics. I start my Master's study at China Agricultural University and my supervisor is Prof. Tan. During the first year of my Master's study, I focus on simple sensor integration of encoder and onboard inertial sensor. I also took a try on the state-of-the-art 2D LiDAR sensor (it is a very nice sensor at that stage!). In the second year of my Master's study, I do an internship in an energetic startup, IdriverPlus, focusing on autonomous driving vehicle development with Dr. Xiaofei Li. I start my research on LiDAR SLAM in the team where I enjoy a lot! In the autumn of 2017, I got my Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. However, I have to say, my research track is actually is not quite Mechanical Engineering!

From 4th, Sept 2017, I start my Ph.D. study at Hong Kong Polytechnic University where I met my key boss, Dr. Hsu who is really an energetic researcher! I'm a self-motivated Ph.D. candidate at Hong Kong Polytechnic University (supervisor: Dr. Li-ta Hsu). I was also a visiting student at the University of California, Berkeley (supervisor: Prof. Tomizuka) in 2018. My resume can be found here (CV).
