Xuning Yang


I am a Ph.D. student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Nathan Michael at the Resilient Intelligent Systems Lab (RISLab). I obtained my B.A.Sc. in Engineering Science with Honours from University of Toronto, with a major in Aerospace Engineering and a minor in Robotics and Mechatronics.

My research interests include applying statistical learning techniques to control theory. More recently, my research has focused on online estimation of user intent for control of autonomous mobile robots, and agile safe navigation in cluttered environments.
