I'm Shangding Gu

Now I am pursuing a Ph.D. degree in computer science at Technical University of Munich, under the supervison of Prof. Alois Knoll. Before studying in Munich, I was a research assistant at Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Tongji University. My research currently focuses on developing artificial intelligence methods and models, with a special interest in exploring the theory of safe reinforcement learning and motion planning, and its application in robotics, in which my goal is to enable robots to know how to learn, reason and plan, and enable robots to work in support of people (The picture on the left is from the Science website.). I support slow science. I am a student of mind, nature, and cosmos.

We organized a safe reinforcement learning workshop, the researchers and students who are interested in safe RL are welcome to join us! For details, please see the safe RL workshop's homepage.

If you are interested in the above topics, please feel free to contact me indicating your background and skills. Outside of research, I enjoy playing the guitar, reading, running, swimming and playing badminton with friends.
