Shijie Gao


Hello and welcome! I am a Ph.D. student 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 is focused on adaptive motion and path planning for unmanned ground/aerial vehicles, transfer learning, and robotics system failure detection and recovery. I also have experience in robot indoor localization and sensing. Feel free to shoot 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 know more about me!
