Biography

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Michigan Traffic Lab of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, working with Prof. Henry X. Liu. I received my Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering at Tsinghua University in 2023, advised by Prof. Keqiang Li, and my Bachelor’s Degree in Automotive Engineering at Tsinghua University in 2018. During my PhD study, I was also advised by Prof. Yang Zheng from University of California, San Diego. From Dec 2022 to Dec 2023, I was a visiting PhD student in the Automatic Control Laboratory at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), advised by Prof. Colin Jones.

I received the Outstanding Ph.D. Graduate, the Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Award, and the National Scholarship from Tsinghua University. I was the recipient of the Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation Award from China Society of Automotive Engineers (China SAE) in 2023, the Annual Best Paper Award for the Journal of Transport Information and Safety in 2021, and the Best Paper Award at the 18th COTA International Conference of Transportation Professionals in 2018.
