Junning Huang

Junning joined the Intelligent Autonomous Systems Group at TU Darmstadt as a Ph.D. researcher in November 2020. He works with Davide Tateo and Jan Peters within IAS and its research group Safe and Reliable Robot Learning.

Before joining IAS, Junning received his bachelor‘s degree in Microelectronics, as well as his master’s degree in Computer Science from the Guangdong University of Technology. During his studies, he focused on two topics in reinforcement learning (RL): efficient exploration and RL applications in autonomous driving. His current research interest lays in three folds: 1. System Identification and observer design; 2. Nonlinear control, 3. Reinforcement Learning with applications on robots.
