About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow in Multi-Agent Systems Lab at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).

I received my Ph.D. degree in School of Computer Science and Technology from USTC in 2013. My Ph.D. advisor was Professor Guoliang Chen. I was co-advised by Professor Yixin Chen (Washington University in St. Louis) and Professor Guangzhong Sun. I received my B.E. degree in School of Computer Science and Technology from USTC in 2007.

Research interests

I'm interested in automated planning and scheduling in home service robot and 2D robot football game, parallel computing, and cloud computing.

Softwares
  1. Plan-A: a Cost-Optimal Planner Based on SAT-Constrained Optimization. (download)

  2. Roamer and Roamer-p: Roamer is a random-walk assisted best-first search planner for classical planing (download, PDF). A multi-thread planner (Roamer-p) based on the same idea can be found here (PDF). Roamer ranked 5th out of 27 planners in Deterministic Satisficing track and Roamer-p 4th out of 8 planners in Deterministic multi-core track in 7th International Planning Competition 2011.

  3. Open Workflow: a workflow management system designed for a new challenging environment of ad hoc mobile networks. We introduced a framework that co-designs workflow allocation and host scheduling in a unified way. (download) A previous workflow of open workflow can be found at here.
