Jiaheng Hu 胡佳恒

Welcome to my homepage! My name is Jiaheng Hu (Jeff). Starting from 2022, I'm a Computer Science PhD student at UT-Austin researching at the intersection of Machine Learning and Robotics. I'm fortunate to be co-advised by Professor Peter Stone and Professor Roberto Martín-Martín. I earned my M.S. in Robotics at Carnegie Mellon Univeristy in 2022, supervised by Professor Howie Choset; and graduated summa cum laude from Columbia University with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2020.

Fun Facts
  • I'm a big fan of contract bridge, and have been playing in various tournaments over the years. My most noticeable achievment in bridge is the 2nd place in the 2022 NABC 0-10k pairs, and the champion of 2021 GNT flight C.
  • I enjoy both watching and playing soccer, piano and guitar in my leisure.
  • I play a few video games, including Counter-Strike (CSGO MM rank: LE) and Pokemon (main series & PoGo). I also used to play SGS quite competitively.
