Biography

I am a bachelor student in Mechanical Engineering in Tongji University, Shanghai, China. During my undergraduate study, I focused my interests on Mechatronics, because I realized a robotic system must be a cohesive union of mechanical motion and electronic control. I joined Vision4Robotics Group in Nov. 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Changhong Fu. Currently I’m conducting research on Robot Vision with a concentration on “Correlation Filter for UAV Tracking”.

“There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”. ———— Albert Einstein
I like to explore the internal mechanism of everything I’ve leaned. Because I believe there are always fascinating properties underlying the plain facts.

Attainments

Here I list some of my achievements, including 3 scholarships, 3 awards in mathematical contests and 2 prizes in engineering competitions.

Language Certificates

I took the IELTS exam on 22 June 2019 and got an overall score at 7.5(8.5R/8.5L/6.0S/6.0W). Later on 11 Oct. 2019, I took the GRE and got V160 Q170 AW4.5. You can view my IELTS and GRE score sheet on my website, but some information are edited for security concern.

Mathematical Contest in Modeling

I lead my team and won the 1st Prize in the 2018 Tongji Mathematical Contest in Modeling. Subsequently, my team won the 3rd prizes in the national MCM and Honorable Mention in the international MCM.

Tongji Scholarship for Excellence

This scholarship is awarded annually to students with excellent academic performance. I won 3 prizes in three consecutive years, 1st prize in the academic year 2015, 3rd in 2016 and 2nd in 2017.

Hands-on Engineering Competition

I led the mechanical design of the supply station in Super Power Robot Team. We participated in the RoboMaster Robotics Competition and won the Second Prize of Eastern Sector. I participated in the 2018 PACE competition with my team, and my work centered on the driving module and the visual perception of PEB, and we won the runner-up prize in the PUMA annual forum.

Online Courses

I like to take video lectures online, because they can help me go beyond the limit of the classroom. These are the courses that I value most, and you can find more courses I recommend in my post.
