Hi There! I'm Yulun.

 

I am a graduate student in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, advised by Professor Jonathan How. Previously I was an undergraduate student studying Computer Science at UC Berkeley. My interests lie broadly in robot autonomy and machine learning.

News:

[06/24/2020] Our new paper, "Asynchronous and Parallel Distributed Pose Graph Optimization", has been accepted in Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L)!

 

[05/26/2020] I'm excited to begin working as a research intern at Facebook Reality Lab this summer! 

 
EXPERIENCE
Fall 2017 - Present

Research Assistant

Aerospace Controls Lab, MIT

I currently work as research assistant at MIT's Aerospace Controls Lab (ACL). My research focuses on collaborative simultaneous localization and mapping (CSLAM) and multi-agent exploration.

Spring 2017

Teaching Assistant

UC Berkeley

I served as an undergraduate student instructor for EE 122 - Communication Networks. My main duties include holding regular office hours,  designing exam questions, and helping with class logistics.

UC Berkeley

I worked as an undergraduate research assistant with Ming Jin and Professor Costas Spanos. Our projects aim to use agile robots to accomplish tasks in the emerging field of smart buildings. 

Spring 2016 - Spring 2017

Undergraduate Researcher

Summer 2016

Software Engineering Intern

Oracle

I joined Oracle's Solaris Platform QE group as a software engineering intern. I worked on projects related to test automation, for which I implemented a template-based test suite integration process. I also laid the groundwork for an extensible smart failure analysis tool.
