Wenhao Yu


I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology advised by Karen Liu and Greg Turk. ​My research lies at the intersection of computer graphics, robotics, and machine learning. I develop learning-based algorithms for acquiring motor skills for animated characters and transfer learning algorithms for transferring learned skills from simulation to real robots and novel environments. My research goal is to enable simulated characters and real robots to learn highly-dynamic movements in complex environments in an automatic, efficient, and generalizable way.
