Dr. Fangyi Zhang joined Alibaba DAMO Academy as a Research Scientist in Robotics since 2018. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) at QUT node in 2018, with his Ph.D. thesis entitled “Learning Real-world Visuo-motor Policies from Simulation”, supervised by Prof. Peter Corke, Dr. Jürgen Leitner, Prof. Michael Milford and Dr. Ben Upcroft. His current research interests include robot learning, robotic vision, robotic manipulation, deep learning, reinforcement learning and transfer learning.
He obtained his B.Eng. degree in Automation from East China Jiaotong University in 2010, followed with three years’ work experience on R&D of locomotive control algorithms and electrical systems in the CRRC Zhuzhou Institute from 2010 to 2013. In 2014, he stayed for one year at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, as a research assistant supervised by Prof. Ming Liu, doing research on VLC-based indoor localization and 2D-laser based 3D sensing.
