Thank you for your visit.

I am Letian Wang, currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Toronto, where I am so fortunate to be supervised by the brilliant researcher Prof. Steven Waslander in the TRAIL LabPreviously, I was also fortunate to do research with/at:

I obtained my bachelor's degree and master's degree with highest honor in 2018 and 2021 respectively, both at Beihang University (Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics), China, supervised by Prof. Qingyun Wang.

My research interest lies in robotics, autonomous driving, and machine learning. Specifically, my interest is triggered by a range of human-robot interaction (HRI) applications, e.g., transferable and adaptable behavior generation, socially-compatible human-like behaviors in decision making, robust and fast learning from human demonstrations or historic information with uncertainty, and safe control/RL in multi-agent scenario with guarantees.

To address challenges in HRI, a highly interdisciplinary area, I leverage techniques from multiple areas, including (inverse, hierarchical)reinforcement learning, probabilistic robotics, graph neural network, control theory, convex optimization, cognitive science, etc.

I have many robotics experiences, won the Best Paper Award Hornoable Mention at RA-L, first place in the CARLA autonomous driving leaderboard, first prize in the National Challenge Cup 2017 (全国挑战杯一等奖, the highest technology competition for college students in China), and was fortunate to co-found a start-up in industrial UAVs.
