I am currently a Postdoc in the Autonomous Agents Research Group at University of Edinburgh. My research focuses on explainable AI with a particular emphasis on autonomous vehicles. I was previously a PhD student in Institute of Automotive Engineering at Technical University of Darmstadt with the research topic of autonomous vehicle safety. I obtained my Master at Tongji University and Bachelor at Wuhan University of Technology.


  • 10/10/2022 I joined the Autonomous Agents Research Group as a Postdoc.
  • 21/02/2022 I was a senior engineer at DJI responsible for the safety design of L3 automated vehicles
  • 26/10/2021 I passed my doctoral examination with very good with the title of “Silent Testing for safety Validation of Automated Driving in Field Operation”.
