Quanyi Li

I am an MRes student at IPAB, University of Edinburgh, advised by Prof. Ram Ramamoorthy. Previously, I was a research assistant at Multimedia Lab (MMLab), The Chinese University of Hong Kong, working with Prof. Bolei Zhou. I received my bachelor degree at Bejing University of Posts and Telecommunications under the supervision of Prof. Haipeng Yao in July 2020.

When I was a senior student, I did an internship at SenseTime and worked with Dr. Chunxiao Liu. Now I am working with Dr. Jiangmiao Pang at Shanghai AI Lab.


I am interested in Embodied AI with its generalizability, safety, interpretability and interactivity. I have rich experience on building learning-based/data-driven controllers for autonomous vehicles, legged robots and drones.


Sep, 2022 I am looking for PhD position outside of the US
Sep, 2022 Policy Dissection is to appear in NeurIPS22 :blush:
Mar, 2022 I am so happy that MetaDrive is finally accepted to TPAMI :sob:.
