I joined the MPI for Intelligent Systems as Post-Doc in August 2013. I received my Ph.D. degree from Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA) in July 2013. During my Ph.D., my main work includes two aspects:
1) Development of memory-based learning methods for a 5-DoF ping-pong playing robot. These learning methods focus on the learning ability, the execution efficiency and data storage.
2) Integration of physical knowledge, human experience and memory-based learning approaches in the robotic system. The integration is able to make full use of available information such that a higher robot performance is achieved.

Currently, I work on a 7-DoF robot arm and implement it for the table tennis task. My research interest lies in control theory, machine learning and their applications to robotic systems.
