Peng Yu
Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, MIT

I am a 3rd-year PhD student at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. I work in the Model-based Embedded and Robotic Systems group with Professor Brian Williams. My research focuses on the development of autonomous systems that can better collaborate with humans in planning and execution complex tasks, especially under over-subscribed and risky situations.

I received Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in June 2010, and Master of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT in February 2013. You may find me through email (yupeng AT or in the MERS lab (Room 224, Building 32).
Figures on the top: The one on the left is a Personal Air Vehicle in X-Plane. The vehicle is controlled by a temporal plan executive, Kirk, and my collaborative diagnosis algorithm (more details about this project can be found in the research page). The one on the right is the TERRAFUGIA flying car. I wish I could have my algorithm implemented on this car or other vehicles someday, and make them convenient transit options for the public.
