Pingcheng Jian

I am a second year PhD student in the ECE department at Duke University. I'm fortunate to be advised by Professor Michael Zavlanos. I am also working with Professor Boyuan Chen at Duke General Robotics Lab.

Previously, I obtained my bachelor of engineering from the Department of Automation at Tsinghua University in 2021.

I'm interested in robotics and machine learning. Much of my research is about applying machine learning methods to robots.

DAIR: Disentangled Attention Intrinsic Regularization for Safe and Efficient Bimanual Manipulation
