Tian Gao

I am a fourth-year undergraduate student in Yao Class (founded by Andrew Yao), Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences, Tsinghua University. I am honored to receive Yao Award (Gold Medal), the highest honor of our department.

I am broadly interested in machine learning and robotics. My research goal is to develop efficient learning methods to build autonomous robots with robust and generalizable behaviors that help humans do a wide range of real-world tasks.

I am developing decision making methods for (1) enabling embodied agents to learn with minimal human supervision and limited prior domain knowledge and (2) improving the robustness and the sample efficiency of policy learning.
