I am a PhD student at School of Computing, NUS, advised by Prof. Lin Shao. Previously, I obtained my Master's Degree in 2023 and my Bachelor's degree in 2020 from Department of Automation, Tsinghua University under the supervision of Prof. Feng Chen. I also work closely with Prof. Huazhe Xu.

My research interest lies in robot learning: endowing robots with the most dexterous manipulation skills based on the simplest mechanical structures.

I am open to research collaborations! If you are a senior researcher seeking collaborators (on the topics of 3D vision/LLM/tactile/generative model for robotics), or a junior student seeking a beginning research project, contact me now!
