Yunlong Song <宋运龙>
I am a PhD student at the Robotics and Perception Group led by Prof. Davide Scaramuzza at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich. My research interests lie at the intersection between machine learning and optimal control. I am currently working on combining deep reinforcement learning and model predictive control with appilcations to high-speed autonomous quadrotor control. Prior to RPG, I obtained my Msc degree in Information and Communication Engineering (iCE) from Technische Universität Darmstadt. My master thesis entitled "Minimax and Entropic Proximal Policy Optimization" was written under the supervision of Boris Belousov and Prof. Jan Peters.
Research Interests: Reinforcement Learning, Robot Learning, Autonomous Drone Racing
