About me

Hi I'm Zhong Guan. I'm a senior year student in the Department of Electronic & Information Engineering at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University until the end of 2019. After graduation, I will begin my master study in MRSD program at The Robotics Institute at the Carnegine Mellon University starting from Fall 2019!

I am a robot enthusiast. I have more than 2 years experience in robotics and have developed 4 autonomous robots. My research interests lie in mobile robot dynamics and control, motion planning, computer vision, and machine learning. I am looking for a summer internship in robotics starting May 2019. Please contact me if you find me suitable for any position.
