About

I am interested in imitation learning, optimal control, reinforcement learning, motion planning and their applications to robotic systems. Plese see my research experience as follows:

- Italian Institute of Technology, Genova, Italy (2017-present) 
Develop novel movement primitives for imitation learning as well as reinforcement learning associated with high-dimensional states/actions.

- Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen, Germany (2013-2016) 
Developed regression and reinforcement learning algorithm, applied them to an anthropomorphic robot table tennis. Meanwhile, a more general robot table tennis setup was developed.

- Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China (2010-2013) 
Formulated the learning of a robot table tennis as a data-driven learning problem. Besides, the integration of human knowledge and memory-based learning approaches was developed.
