I am an incoming assistant professor in the Computer Science department in North Carolina State university. Now, I am a postdoc associate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Previously, I got the Postdoc Fellowship from the Maryland Robotics Center, advised by Dr. Ming C. Lin at the Univerisity of Maryland, College Park. I obtained my Ph.D. degree at the Colorado School of Mines in 2022, supervised by Dr. Hao Zhang in the Human-Centered Robotics Lab. I am now serving as the Associate Editor for IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters (RAL). I am also the first author of the best paper award for Agri-Robot at IEEE 2023 International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  (IROS). In the past 4 years, I published 19 (14 first-author) papers in top conferences and journals, including RSS, ICRA, IROS, ICML, AAAI, IJRR, AuRo.

The central theme of my research focuses on collaborative autonomy to enable team awareness for multi-robot and human-autonomy teaming. This vision seeks to empower autonomous robots with the ability to collaboratively and autonomously comprehend both unstructured environments and their human and robotic teammates, thereby surpassing human-level collaboration for complex tasks in open-world settings.

I am on the job market, please check out my CV or get in touch!
