About me

I’m a Ph.D. student at HKUST Aerial Robotics Group advised by Prof. Shaojie Shen. Previously, I obtained my master’s degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University at IRMV Lab, where I was advised by Prof. Hesheng Wang.

My research interests include the areas of robotics and autonomous driving, with focus on state estimation, localization and mapping and computer vision.

If you have any exciting ideas or cooperation intentions, please feel free to contact me at zqiaoac@connect.ust.hk :)
