Wenqiang Xu


I am actively seeking a postdoctoral position. My PhD and MS was completed at the School of SEIEE, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, under the supervision of Prof. Cewu Lu. Prior to this, I earned my bachelor’s degree from the School of the Gifted Young at the University of Science and Technology of China.

I once visited NUS, I was advised by Prof. Shao Lin and collaborated with Prof. Harold Soh.

I founded and lead the RobotFlow, which contains full-stack solutions to multi-modal perception, planning and control, and multiphysics & musculoskeletal simulation. This infrastructure is supporting all research projects in my team!

My research spectrum is shifting from object understanding to human-centric learning, with an interest in areas such as brain-robot interfaces, muscle-actuated control, dexterous manipulation and visual-tactile perception. Something cool is ongoing!
