Hello! My name is Zi Wang, and I am a PhD candidate from Dept. of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at MIT. I am a member of the Learning & Intelligent Systems Group at CSAIL and the Machine Learning Group at MIT. I am working with Prof. Stefanie Jegelka, Prof. Leslie Pack Kaelbling, and Prof. Tomás Lozano-Pérez on exciting projects about active learning and Bayesian optimization with an ultimate goal of embedding the learning abilities in autonomous robots.
