Kevin is a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Oxford Robotics Institute, University of Oxford, UK. His research interest focuses on robot learning for robot perception and localization, task-oriented manipulation, and long-term autonomy. He is working on solving the core challenges in the emerging autonomous robotics to enable the robot to manipulate with complex industrial objects or localize and navigate in the dynamic, real-life environment e.g. warehouse, agriculture, urban driving, etc. Kevin received his Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow, UK in 2016. Before joining Oxford, he was the postdoctoral research fellow at Lincoln Center of Autonomous Systems, University of Lincoln (2017-2018) and Extreme Robotics Lab, University of Birmingham (2016-2017). Since 2012, he has contributed to a few EU/EPSRC funded projects e.g. CloPeMa, RoMaNs, ILIAD, and MobileRobotics. Kevin will join the University of Sheffield as a lecturer (Assistant Professor) in September 2019.
