About Me

I am Tong Qin ( 秦通 ). I got Ph.D. degree in Aerial Robotics Group Robotics Institute, with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), supervised by Shaojie Shen. I received B.Eng. degree in control science and engineering from Zhejiang University, China, supervised by Chao Xu. I had been a research intern in Facebook Reality Labs (Occulus Research), mentored by Anastasios Mourikis.

Currently, I have been a research engineering in Huawei. We have a lot of positions for talented people. If you are looking for new opportunities related to SLAM, contact me!


My research topics include SLAM, visual-inertial odometry(VIO), sensor fusion in autonomous robots and Augmented Reality.
