Chengkai Wu     吴程锴

I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Automation at Harbin Institute of Technology, Shenzhen, China, advised by Jie Mei. In addition to this, since January 2023, I have been working as a visiting student at SYSU-STAR group, under the supervision of Boyu Zhou. I was a visiting student supervised by Dr. Yanjun Cao at FAST Lab from 07/2021 to 09/2021.

Previously, in 2022, I completed my Bachelor's degree in Electronic Information Engineering at College of Electronic and Engineering, Xidian University.

I am actively seeking PhD opportunities in robotics, with a special focus on motion planning, commencing in Spring 2025.

I'm interested in motion planning, mobile manipulators, and unmanned aerial vehicles(UAVs). Most of my research is about enabling mobile robots move intelligently. Representative papers are highlighted.
