May the force be with you!

I’m Haomin (Haumin) Zhu, current Computer Science and Robotics student at GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania advised by Prof. Kostas Daniilidis.

Before coming to Penn, I graduated from University of Science and Technology, Beijing (USTB) with the highest honor Golden Presidential Medal. At USTB I majored in Mechanical Engineering and Automation advised by Prof. Jiang Li and worked for ABU ROBOCON Robot Contest at Competative Robotics Lab of USTB.

My background is super interdisciplinary (CS, EE, ME). I have much experience of projects and research in roboics, computer vision, learning and mechatronics. Currently my research interests lie in learning (especially generative models) in computer vision, robotics and control.

I’m enthusiastic in developing and applying all kinds of learning algorithm to real robots especially ones used in service, human-assisting fields. I want to develop the highly-intelligent robots that can be better controlled, and can better understand as well as interact with human.

Ideally, the ultimate ones could be easily customized, rapdily designed and fabricated and have the life-long learning ability to fit with different environment and users.
