About Me

I am a master student in Robotics from the University of Michigan. My main research interest is Computer Vision and Robotics Perception. I received my B.S.E. in Computer Science at the University of Michigan in 2019. I was previously a Mechanical Engineering student in UM-SJTU Joint Institute from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
