Yunhao Luo

I am a second year M.S. student at Brown CS. I work closely with Yilun Du and Prof. Joshua B. Tenenbaum at MIT and Prof. Chen Sun at Brown on embodied intelligence. Before that, I worked with Prof. Lin Wang at HKUST(GZ) on image understanding and Prof. Jianguo Zhang at SUSTech on medical image analysis. I received my B.E. in CS from SUSTech in 2022.

My research goal is to develop autonomous agents that can freely interact with the physical world and bring a positive impact on people's lives. To this end, my interests lie at the intersection of computer vision, decision making, and robotics. I seek to build intelligence agents in a more efficient and scientific way by drawing inspiration from human cognition biases, such as compositionality, to make them more reliable, lightweight, cost-effective, and accessible to users. Currently, I am working on leveraging generative models to enable more robust and generalizable decision-making.

Besides academia, I spend my time doing sports, playing music, and juggling with friends. Check them out here.

    • I enjoy playing basketball. Some of my lovely teammates:
    • I love track and field, especially middle-distance running. I participate in amateur events occasionally.
    • I started to play the flute (Dizi) when I was 8. I also played in my college's orchestra.
    • I'm from Guangzhou, a city with lots of tasty food.
