Hello there :)

👋 ! I am Jiayi Pan. A junior student majored in Computer Science. I am fortunate to work with Professor Joyce Chai and Fan Wu as a research assistant.

I’m broadly interested in research that makes machines more intelligent and human. Particularly, I am interested in leveraging multimodal information to explore areas such as language grounding, embodied AI, and human robot interaction.
