Wenchao Ding (丁文超)

I am Wenchao Ding, a fourth-year Ph.D. student from the Electronic and Computer Engineering Department at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, where I am advised by Prof. Shaojie Shen and working in the HKUST Aerial Robotics Group.


My main research interest lies in planning. During my first year into robotics, I mainly worked on planning problems for macro aerial robots such as quadrotors. I loved developing methods which are elegantly formulated and at the same time have practical impacts.


After that, I devoted to the field of autonomous driving. I solved several interesting problems in prediction and motion planning for autonomous vehicles. And I am working on the behavior planning currently. My big picture is to finish the prediction->motion planning->behavior planning pipeline and verify my planning methods on a real vehicle.

Other publications

During the first year of my Ph.D., I was doing research about wireless communication and worked with Prof. Vincent LAU and Prof. An Liu in HKUST. Our work about online caching was published in a top conference (Globalcom 2017) and then in a top journal (IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications 2019, to appear). Although I do not study wireless communication anymore, I need to thank Prof. LAU and Prof. Liu for their guidance and training. I get my motto from An: "Always plan for the future but do not worry too much about it".
