I am a postdoctoral researcher in Robotic Manipulation and Mobility Lab at Columbia University, directed by Prof. Matei Ciocarlie. I finished my Ph.D. thesis in Mechanical Engineering at Vanderbilt University, supervised by Prof. Nabil Simaan. Before that, I received my MS degree from Columbia University and BS degree from Tsinghua University. A complete CV can be found here.

My research interest lies in modeling, sensing, and control of robots. I have experience in continuum robots, kinematic modeling and calibration, force control, telemanipulation, robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery, robotic palpation, and robotic hand designs.

My career goal is to become a full-stack roboticist, who has knowledge in mechanism design & analysis, dynamics & control, system identification, and software implementation, and to build intelligent machines that help tasks in daily life.
