Short Biography

I am currently a Ph.D. student at DISAL working on gas source localization and mapping in realistic indoor environments by using static and mobile sensor networks. I received my M.Sc. in Advanced Robotics 2019 from Centrale Nantes, France. I carried out my master’s thesis at the CHORALE Group at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, where I worked on proactive-cooperative navigation in human-like environments for autonomous robots. I received my B.Sc. in Intelligence Science and Technology 2017 from Nankai University, China. More information about me can be found in the following:

Research Interests and Projects

My research interests include robotics olfaction, decision making, and motion planning. The main focus of my research is to localize the gas leaks and monitor the gas distribution in realistic indoor environments using mobile robots.  More information about my research can be found here.

Teaching and Service Activities

I am serving as TA in the Signals, Instruments, and Systems (SIS), and Distributed Intelligent Systems (DIS) courses at DISAL since 2021.
