Bio: Peter is a PhD student of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He received the degrees of B.S. in Computer Science from National Chiao-Tung University, in 2010, Taiwan and M.S. in Computer Science from National Taiwan University, in 2012. He is now working with Alberto Rodriguez, and John Leonard in mCube lab. He studies physical contact (e.g. pushing objects) to help robots to understand the physical world. His recent work on pushing are accepted in IROS: Shape and Pose recovery from Planar Pushing, and More than a Million Ways to Be Pushed

Designing robots to improve people's lives has always been his career goal. He worked on perception problems in DARPA Robotics Challenge (2013-2015), and served as perception and software lead in Amazon Robotics Challenge (Second Place 2015, Third Place in 2016, First Place in Stowing in 2017). He is awarded second place in MIT Solve-a-Thon by proposing a wearable bend with sensors that helps detect pneumonia.
