I am a PhD student at the Smart Robotics Lab, Imperial College London, working with Dr. Stefan Leutenegger and Prof. Andrew Davison. I was previously a research intern at Facebook Reality Labs, with Dr. Lingni Ma.
My current research interest is to achieve an object-level SLAM system working in a dynamic environment. I am also broadly interested in SLAM, robotics and computational photography.
Brief Bio
Before starting my PhD at Imperial College London, I received my Master degree in Precision Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 2017, supervised by Assoc. Prof. Atsushi Yamashita and Prof. Hajime Asama. Before that, I got my Bachelor's degree in Information Engineering from South China University of Technology in 2014.
