Zhiqiang Sui

I'm a fifth year PhD student at Computer Science and Engineering in University of Michigan. I'm advised by Prof. Chad Jenkins. I'm interested in Probabilistic Robotics, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Now I'm mainly working on perception for manipulation. More specifically, I'm developing algorithms and systems to estimate the cluttered and unstructure scenes for goal-directed robotic manipulation.

Now I'm building a robust Sequential Scene Understanding and Manipulation (SUM) for autonomous robots which enable them to perform real world complex sequential manipulation tasks.
