Peide Huang

I am a second-year Ph.D. student advised by Prof. Ding Zhao @ SafeAI Lab and co-advised by Prof. Fei Fang @ AI and Social Good Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. Prior to joining CMU, I received my Bachelor's degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and Master's degree from Stanford University.

My research goal is to understand the interaction between the reinforcement learning agent and the tasks, with the objective to enable robust, safe, and explainable decision making. To achieve this goal, I leverage curriculum learning, representation learning, and game theory. I also tackle real-world applications in robotics and autonomous driving.
