Hongyi Chen

Avatar I am an incoming phd student to CMU Robotic Institute. I'm currently a master student at GaTech advised by Professor Patricio A. Vela. I received a master degree in ECE from the Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Professor Changliu Liu. My work focuses on robot navigation, perception, safe control and reinforcement learning. I received a bachelor degree in Applied Mathematics from Beijing University of Chemical Technology and a double degree in Economics from Peking University.
