Overview

For up-to-date information on my research, please visit my lab's website by clicking here.

In my lab, we are developing the next generation of robots empowered by artificial intelligence, for assisting us all in everyday environments. Our research lies at the intersection of robotics, computer vision, machine learning, and we are currently studying how robots can learn to physically interact with objects, using their arms and hands. Applications include domestic robots (e.g. tidying the home), manufacturing robots (e.g. assembling products in a factory), and warehouse robots (e.g. picking and placing from/into storage). In particular, we are investigating real-world applications of deep learning for vision-based robot manipulation, using various combinations of reinforcement learning, imitation learning, and classical control.
