Hi :wave: I am Liyiming Ke, 柯丽一鸣, or “Kay”. I am a final-year grad student at University of Washington, advised by Siddhartha Srinivasa. I research on Robotics :robot: Learning, with a focus on Data-Driven Fine Manipulation.

As a test-bed for pushing the limit of fine manipulation, I built a chopsticks robot to showcase the precision and dynamic reactivity of systems trained via reinforcement learning. I have also developed theories like f-divergence framework for imitation learning and adversarial imitation learning and leveraging local-continuity in dynamics.

I was very fortunate to work with Abhishek Gupta, Tapomayukh Bhattacharjee, Byron Boots and Sanjiban Choudary.

I am looking for a faculty position as of 2023 Fall!!
