Bokui (William) Shen 沈博魁


I am a Ph.D. candidate in computer science at Stanford University. My research aims at building autonomous systems that can perceive the physical world and interact with it. More specifically, my research focuses on building digital twins of the real world, and using them to enable robust perception and robot learning.

I’m advised by two brilliant professors Silvio Savarese and Leonidas J. Guibas.

I received a B.S. in computer science, with Departmental Honor and University Distinction, from Stanford University.
