I'm a 4th-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Arizona State University. I work at Yochan Lab (AI Lab), supervised by Dr. Subbarao Kambhampati. My research
interests lie at the intersection of machine learning (especially reinforcement learning and computer vision), robotics, and human-robot interaction.
Specifically, I am working on:
(a) Developing algorithms that enable human users to effortlessly specify desired robot
behaviors through human inputs such as preference labels (i.e., learning from human feedback), symbolic or natural language feedback, demonstrations (i.e., imitation learning), and human gaze/attention information, etc. Applications include character/animation control, autonomous vehicles, and robot skill learning.
(b) Building intelligent agents that can learn to solve complex long-horizon tasks by
integrating planning with reinforcement learning, and leveraging symbolic human knowledge
(e.g., in the form of incomplete/imprecise symbolic domain models).
