Yifeng Zhu 朱毅枫

I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin. My research lies on the intersection of robot learning, robot control and robot planning. I am interested in general-purpose robot autonomy, and I am also interested in its social impact to our daily life in all aspects.
