🐱 About Me

My name is Ruolin Ye. I am a second-year Ph.D. student at Cornell University supervised by Prof. Tapomayukh Bhattacharjee. Before that, I worked as an intern at ZenusTech supervised by Dr. Xinxin Zhang. I worked with Prof. Cewu Lu, in MVIG Lab during my undergrad at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. My research interest includes human-robot collaboration and simulation. If you find any research interest we may share, or some intersection on projects I am working on, please feel free to drop me an Email. I am always open to collaboration. In my spare time, I enjoy sketching, watching musicals, and making cocktails.
