Undergraduate Researcher

Advanced Integrated Cyber--Physical (AICPS) Lab

University of California, Irvine

Summer 2018

I was involved in the Health IoT project advised by Professor Al Faruque and worked with Nafiul Rashid. This project is about monitoring people’s eating and drinking behaviors using the data obtained from multiple sensors, to help people maintain balanced diets and healthy life styles. In the project, I designed algorithms which employed signal processing techniques and machine learning algorithms to process the data, extracted features from the data and estimated the behaviors of eating and drinking.

April 2016 - June 2019

I worked on Robotics and Machine Learning under the supervision of Professor Zhijun Zhang. I focused on controlling and training the humanoid robot, enabling it to replicate and imitate behaviors demonstrated by the human both online and offline.

January 2018 - February 2018 and May 2018

I worked on the motion generation and motion planning of the humanoid robot arms with Mr. Lingdong Kong. We aimed to design more efficient and robust schemes to generate motions of the redundant manipulators which can be applied to the humanoid robots.
