About Me

I am a PhD student in the Intelligent Robotics Lab at the University of Birmingham, working on "Machine Learing for Dexterous Robot Manipulation". The main area of my research is applying Machine Learning techniques to develop a framework that can aid robots to perform changing-contact manipulation tasks in dynamic and unknown environments using different objects.

My Interests

  • I like creating robot interfaces and implementing algorithms for testing the capabilities of intelligent robot systems.
  • I especially enjoy working with robot manipulators in the context of assembly tasks involving challenging interaction dynamics and complex control strategies.
  • I also like discovering things (codes, algorithms, languages, music, etc.) and trying them out in my own way.
