I used to be a Ph.D. candidate from the State Key Laboratory of Robotics of Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT). During my two years at HIT (03/2015~09/2016), I participated in the National High-tech R&D Program of Research on Dynamic and Stable Walking Technology of a Hydraulic Biped Robot.
During my Ph.D. study, I visited the Berkeley Robotics & Human Engineering Lab of UC, Berkeley as a visiting research student for 28 months (10/2016~02/2019). Under the guidance of Prof. Homayoon Kazerooni and fellows at SuitX, I carried out research on the design and control of lower-limb exoskeletons for individuals with paralysis, to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile.
In Feb. 2019, I returned to China to visit my family and prepare for my new study journey at Berkeley. I could not go back due to visa issues, then I came to Singapore to start a business together with two other co-founders. The founded company, Weston Robot Pte Ltd, aims to change the world by accelerating the pace of robot adoption in various sectors. As one of the Co-Founders, I was responsible for the R&D of autonomous mobile robots in multiple application scenarios. After two years, Weston Robot gradually established its own autonomous navigation product line based on the mobile robot platforms from an empty office at the beginning.
However, my goal has always been to carry out research on medical robots to assist individuals with mobility disorders. Hence, I left Weston robot and restarted my Ph.D. program under the guidance of Prof. Ang Wei Tech at NTU in Jan. 2021. Now, I become a member of the Rehabilitation Research Institute of Singapore (RRIS) as a Research Associate. I will continue my research on wearable assistive lower-limb exoskeletons.
|My research and work lie in the design and control of dynamic mechatronic systems, such as humanoid robots, medical exoskeletons, and assisted driving mobile robots. I want to focus my future research on the hybrid control systems, especially on wearable robots, bioinspired robots, and legged locomotion.|
