About Me

Hi! My name consists of two Chinese characters — Wei(伟) Zhe(哲) — which means “great philosophy” and pronounces like wai(t) ger(man). I also go by Wesley to make it easier :-)

Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. (expected to graduate in 2023) at Indiana University - Bloomington, co-advised by Lantao Liu (Vehicle Autonomy and Intelligence Lab) and Roni Khardon. My research revolves around Multi-Objective Decision Making, Monte Carlo Tree Search, Gaussian Processes, and their robotic applications in Information-Driven Planning and Control.

I am happy to chat and collaborate:-) Feel free to shoot me an email! chenweiz@iu.edu
