We always overestimate what we can do in 1 day, and underestimate what we can achieve in 10 years.

Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Integrative Systems and Design

I’m a senior undergraduate student from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology majoring in Integrative Systems and Design (ISD) and Computer Science. Sometimes, I go by my nickname, Tom Notch.

I love all kinds of technology, robotics in particular. I have been participating in robotics competitions since elementary school, so I understand how far robots are from humans, and I’m working hard to close the gap.

I participated in the WildFire project as a Research Associate at the AirLab, Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University from January to August in 2023.

My research interest includes:

  • Robotic Perception (SLAM)
  • Robotic Exploration and Planning
  • Control
