Biography

I am a PhD student at the Autonomous Intelligent Systems Group of the Freiburg University supervised by Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard. My research focuses on robot manipulation and deep learning, to enable machines to intelligently interact with both the physical world and humans, and improve themselves over time. These days, I am particularly interested in how we can scale robot learning systems to autonomously acquire general-purpose knowledge that allows them to compose long-horizon tasks by following unconstrained language instructions.
