Siheng Zhao

Greetings! I'm a Senior student at School of Artificial Intelligence, Nanjing University. Nowadays I work as Research Assistant at HKU NLP Group with Prof. Tao Yu.

Previously, I was a funded visiting student at Department of Computer Science, National University of Singapore, where I'm honoured to work with Prof. Lin Shao. I was also an Intern at NJU NLP Group, advised by Prof. Shu-Jian Huang.

My research interests now lie at the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Reinforcement Learning. My long-term goal is to develop a language-centric agent that can interact with the physical world (Robot Agent), browse websites (Web Agent), play video games (Game Agent) and process data (Data Agent).

Besides, I'm also interested in Robot Learning, especially Deformable Object Manipulation, Differentiable Simulation and 3D Perception.
