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.

I will be joining the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology as an assistant professor in August 2019.

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.
