I am a PhD student in Carnegie Mellon University advised by Sebastian Scherer in the Robotics Institute. I also collaborate with Michael Kaess. I received my B.S. in Robotics and Automation from Shanghai Jiaotong University in 2013.

I am focusing on the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) combined with scene understanding techniques, to improve the robot intelligence in challenging real life environments.


  • In the summer of 2017, I have an research internship at Facebook Oculus VR, working on tracking and SLAM.
