I am an assistant professor in computer science, at SUNY Binghamton.
My research is on autonomous intelligent robotics. I am particularly interested in developing algorithms that integrate reasoning (with declarative knowledge), planning (to achieve long-term goals), and learning (from past experiences) formalisms for mobile service robots that work in human-inhabited, collaborative, everyday environments.
I was an assistant professor in Cleveland State University. I was a Postdoc at UT Austin, where I worked on the Building Wide Intelligence project with Professor Peter Stone. Before that, I received my Ph.D. (2013) from Texas Tech University with Professor Mohan Sridharan (now at University of Birmingham, UK). Before that, I received my M.S. and B.S. from Harbin Institute of Technology . More info about me: CV (pdf, updated in Nov 2018), a short bio (txt), and my name in Chinese (png).
