Short Biography

I am currently a Ph.D. student at DISAL working on 3D gas source localization and mapping in a realistic indoor environment by using Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs). I received my M.Sc. in Advanced Robotics 2019 from Centrale Nantes, France. I carried out my Master Thesis at the CHORALE Group at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, where I worked on the Proactive-Cooperative Navigation in Human-Like Environment 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, motion planning and UAV. The main focus of my research is to localize a source of gas and map the gas distribution in a three-dimensional realistic indoor environment using UAVs.  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.
