Changyi Lin

I am a first-year PhD student at CMU Safe AI Lab, advised by Prof. Ding Zhao. Previously, I was a research assistant at IIIS, Tsinghua University, where I gained my initial exposure to research under the guidance of Prof. Huazhe Xu. I obtained my bachelor degree in ME&CS from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST).

I'm generally interested in the intersection of robotics, tactile sensing, computer vision, and machine learning. My goal is to develop robotic systems that can comprehensively perceive and interact with the physical world.
