Tianyu Li - 黎天宇

I am a research scientist at Facebook AI Research, where I am mentored by Dr.Akshara Rai. I am also an incoming Phd in CS at Georgia Tech working with Prof.Sehoon Ha. I got my Master degree from Carnegie Mellon University, where I was advised by Prof.Chris Atkeson and Prof.Hartmut Geyer. I received my Bachelor degree from Beihang University.

My research interests generally lie at the intersection of Robotics, Reinforcement Learning and Optimal Control with a focus on learning for agile locomotion control. My long-term research goal is introducing legged robot to help people with real world tasks.
