About

I am currently a PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Dr. John Dolan. We are investigating novel approaches in safe control, bahavior planning and prediction under uncertainty in autonomous driving.

I started my PhD journey in fall 2019, after receiving my Bachelor degree in Electronic and Information Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHK-SZ). I was advised by Prof. Yangsheng Xu and Prof. Huihuan Qian during my undergraduate study and research.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking and cooking, sometimes fishing a bit. Pittsburgh also makes me learn to snowboard in winter which is fun!
