I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Johns Hopkins University within the Intuitive Computing Laboratory (affiliated with the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare), under the guidance of Prof. Chien-Ming Huang

Before joining JHU, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Robotics Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2023, under the mentorship of Prof. Jane Li. My doctoral research centered on advancing human-robot interaction in three aspects: (1) the development of adaptive freeform teleoperation interfaces that prioritize intuitiveness and user-friendliness, (2) the formulation of perception-action coupling in telepresence to unravel the intricacies of human-robot collaboration, and (3) the design of teleoperation assistance to enhance task performance and reduce operational workload. 

I received my B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Yuan Ze University and my M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2012 and 2014. My master's thesis focused on human movement science and bio-signal processing, under the supervision of Prof. Tung-Wu Lu. From 2014 to 2018, I was an associate researcher with Mechanical & Mechatronics Systems Research Laboratories (MMSL) in the Service Robot Department of the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI). During this period, my efforts were dedicated to the development of exoskeleton robots aimed at assisting individuals affected by spinal cord injuries and the elderly. This research led to the establishment of a spin-off start-up company, FREE Bionics, in 2017.
