Guanya Shi joined the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in the fall of 2023. He leads the Learning and Control for Agile Robotics (LeCAR) lab.
Guanya is broadly interested in the intersection of learning and control, spanning the entire spectrum from theory and foundations, algorithm design, to real-world applications in agile robotics and autonomy. Applications include aerial robotics, ground vehicles, legged locomotion, multi-agent systems, and safety-critical systems.


Guanya received his B.E. degree from Tsinghua University in 2017 and his Ph.D. degree from Caltech in 2022. Before joining CMU, he was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Washington.
