Zoey Chen


I am a Ph.D. student at the university of Washington advised by Dieter Fox and Abhishek Gupta. My research interests are robot manipulation, computer vision and machine learning. These days, I’m particularly interested in dexterous manipulation, learning from demonstration and self-supervised learning. Prior to my phd life, I did my master from Electrical Engineering Department at the Unviersity of Washington advised by Jenq-Neng Hwang and Imari Sato. I am also fortunate to have interned with many awesome mentors in the past at National Institute of Informatics (Tokyo), Microsoft Research (Redmond), NNAISENSE (Lugano) and Nvidia Robotics Lab (Seattle).
