-I am a co-founder at [[http://virtulus.com|Virtulus Inc.]], applying modern techniques of computer vision and machine learning into the exciting world of robotics. I obtained both my Master's and PhD degrees from MIT (2015) at [[http://www.eecs.mit.edu/|Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)]] and [[http://http://www.csail.mit.edu/|Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL)]], where I worked with Professor [[people:adelson|Edward Adelson]] in the [[:home|Perceptual Science Group]]. My research interests lie in the intersection of robotics, computer vision, machine learning as well as tactile sensing.  
-During my PhD at MIT, I developed a compact and compliant robotic tactile sensor, called [[http://news.mit.edu/2014/fingertip-sensor-gives-robot-dexterity-0919|fingertip GelSight sensor]], that converts touch information into "visual" information on which computer vision and machine learning techniques may be employed. The sensor offers high sensitivity and resolution exceeding that of human fingertips, and can be potentially used as a next-generation robotic fingertip. My research work was reported in various media including MIT News, The Washington Post, TechCrunch, Gizmag, Engadget, etc. (See "In the Press" below.) +I received my PhD from MIT in June 2015.

-I was a recipient of the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Presidential Fellowship (2009) and the winner for MIT "Pi" Recitation Contest (2011.3.14[[http://www.geom.uiuc.edu/~huberty/math5337/groupe/digits.html|1592653589793...]]). In March 2011, I founded the [[http://mitchief.org|MIT-China Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (MIT-CHIEF)]], and served as a co-president for two years. I was also a co-president for [[http://cssa.mit.edu|MIT Chinese Student and Scholar Association (CSSA)]], one of the largest international student groups at MIT.  +
