Shijie Gao


I'm actively looking for Robotics Research/Engineer positions starting in May 2024 


I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia. I work in the Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) Lab and the Link Lab under the advisement of Prof. Nicola Bezzo. Before coming to UVA, I was an exchange student for my senior year of undergraduate at UC Berkeley EECS. I received my B.S. degree in Automation at the Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing, China in 2017.

My research focuses on adaptive motion and path planning for unmanned ground/aerial vehicles, transfer learning, and robotics system failure detection and recovery. My collaboration works extend into the areas of autonomous inspection, robotic swarms, cyber-physical systems (CPS) security, and Human-robot interaction (HRI). Feel free to send me an email if you are interested in my work or have any questions for me.


Beyond school, I’m a big outdoor person and I like almost all kinds of sports. You can visit my website to learn more about my work and me!
