I am now 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).
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.
