My name is Qi Yan (颜齐). I am a Ph.D. student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at the University of British Columbia, co-supervised by Prof. Renjie Liao and Prof. Lele Wang. I am broadly interested in machine learning, self-driving, and robotics.

Previously: I obtained my master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL in 2022, where I worked with Prof. Alexandre Alahi, Dr. Iordan Doytchinov, and Prof. Bertrand Merminod on robot trajectory planning and visual localization. I received my bachelor’s degree in Nuclear Engineering (Honors) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2019. Back then, I worked with Prof. Solmaz Kia and Prof. Li Jiang on multi-robot cooperative localization and Prof. Xianghui Meng on robot manipulator control.

Please refer to my curriculum vitae if you are interested.
