Biography

Zijian Hu is a full-time research staff at the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering. He is interested in building robust machine perception and control systems that allow adaptive, safe, and reliable human-robot interactions. Such systems should operate in noisy environments and can be trained and adapted with minimal supervision.
