Biography

I am the first year PhD student at AIR lab, CMU Robotics Institute, advised by Professor. Sebastian Scherer. Prior to that, I was supervised by Professor Zheng Fang and received my Master's degree from Northeastern University in 2019.

I serve as a SLAM investigator of Team Explorer competing in the DARPA Subterranean Challenge. I design Super Odometry and TP-TIO odometry for Team Exlporer, which are adopted as important methods to acheive state estimation.

I am focusing on the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) in challenging environments. I am also interested in related topcis including multi-sensor fusion, deep learning.
