Yao Su

I am research scientist at State Key Laboratory of General Artificial Intelligence, Beijing Institute for General Artificial Intelligence(BIGAI), where I work on Robotics and Control.

I received my B.S. degree from the School of Mechatronic Engineering, Harbin Institute of Technology in 2016, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of California, Los Angeles in 2017 and 2021. I was adviced by Professor Dennis Hong in Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory(RoMeLa) during my M.S. degree, and Professor Tsu-Chin Tsao in Mechatronics and Control Laboratory(MacLab) during my Ph.D. degree.
