About me

I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Machine Learning and director of Robot Learning and Control (RLC) Lab at the Department of Computer Science and a member of Centre for AI Fundamentals and Centre for Robotics and AI, The University of Manchester, UK. Before that, I was an Assistant Professor in Robot Dynamics at the Department of Cognitive Robotics and co-director of Delft SELF AI Lab, TU Delft, Netherlands and a Project Leader at DJI, China. I am an Area Chair or Associate Editor of IEEE RAL, ACM TOPML, CoRL, L4DC, ICRA, IROS. I received my degrees from Imperial College London, University of Science and Technology of China and Harbin Institute of Technology.

I have a broad interest in robot control using Bayesian machine learning and the principles of dynamic control. Recently, I have been interested in human-AI/robots teaming.
