Yimeng Li

I am a CS PhD student at George Mason University, where I work on computer vision and robotics. My advisor is Prof. Jana Kosecka. I have worked on two problems, visual navigation on indoor scenes and out-of-dist object detection.

In the summer of 2020 I did an internship with Dr. Jiawei Huang at HRI, US where I worked on 3d object detection with stereo. I spent one summer at AFRL MMOI as an intern working on aerial images.

Prior to joining George Mason University, I received my B.E. in Software Engineering in 2014 from East China Normal University, Shanghai.

I'm interested in computer vision, robotics and deep reinforcement learning. My research is about visual navigation.

Simultaneous Mapping and Target Driven Navigation

With a learned grid map, the agent navigates to pre-defined target categories.

Learning View and Target Invariant Visual Servoing for Navigation

Given an initial view and the goal view or an image of the target, we learn viewpoint invariant and target invariant visual servoing for mobile robot navigation.
