Kevin Li Sun



Li Sun (Kevin) is a Postdoctoral Research Assistant within the A2I group at the

Oxford Robotics Institute, part of the Department of Engineering Science,
University of Oxford, UK. His research interest focuses on robot learning
for autonomous grasping, task-oriented manipulation, and long-term
autonomy. He is working on solving the core challenges in the emerging
autonomous robotics to enable the robot to manipulate with complex
industrial objects or localize and navigate in the dynamic, real-life
environment e.g. warehouse, agriculture, urban driving, etc.

Kevin received his PhD from University of Glasgow, UK in 2016. His PhD
research is about dual-arm manipulation of deformable objects. Before
joining Oxford, he was the postdoctoral research fellow at Lincoln Center
of Autonomous Systems, University of Lincoln (2017-2018) and Extreme
Robotics Lab, University of Birmingham (2016-2017). Since 2012, he has
contributed to a few EU/EPSRC funded projects e.g. CloPeMa, RoMaNs and ILIAD.
