Yaxin Liu
Postdoctoral Alumni
Yaxin's Ph.D. research at Georgia Tech was on risk-sensitive planning. As a post-doc at UT Austin, Yaxin was key personnel on the Transfer Learning project. His research focussed on transfering value functions among related sequential decision making problems in order to speed up learning.
