About me

I received the B.S degree from the Department of Control Science and Technology, Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in 2016. I received the PhD degree from the Department of Automation, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2020. I am currently a research associate with Human Robotics Group, the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, London, working on bilateral teleoperation, fuzzy control, and human-machine systems. I have authored/co-authored over 30 publications (see Publications) (1 edited book, 19 journal papers and 12 conference papers) in this field. My citation information can be found in ResearchGate and Google Scholar.  I serve as an editorial board, a program committee member and a reviewer for various international journals and international conferences.  I have organised special sessions for IEEE SMC 2021 and IROS Workshop. I am an IEEE Member and a CSF Member.
