• PhD students for Fall 2025 (fully funded)
    RL background is not necessary. You are welcome to email me but please be specific about why you think we are in good match. This includes not only how you can benefit from me but also how I can benefit from working with you.
  • Master students
    UVA CS has both thesis- and course-based master programs. If you are admitted and want to do your thesis / project with me, feel free to drop me a line. Please email me only at the beginning of your first term at UVA.
  • UVA undergraduates
    Due to limited bandwidth, I can only work with undergraduates who have taken an RL course (at either UVA or Coursera; reading slides or watching YouTube videos does not count unless accompanied with some of your notes). If you want to email me, please describe the most interesting part (in your opinion) of the RL course you took. An exception is the distinguished major program, please feel free to email me with your proposal for DMP.
  • Research interns
    Due to limited bandwidth, I can only work with interns who already have papers that are highly related to my research. If you want to email me, please describe how I would benefit from this collaboration.

In any case, please add [e5274d52b4c6] in the subject of your email to indicate you have read the information above.
