Shulin Tian

I am a final-year undergraduate student at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

Currently, I am focusing on the development and evaluation of autonomous agents, with a particular focus on leveraging multimodal large language models to enhance their functionality and efficiency at NTU S-Lab, advised by Prof. Ziwei Liu.

Previously, I spent a wonderful time working with Prof. Bihan Wen at NTU on low-level vision researches, and Dr. Hongyuan Zhu at Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) on efficient multimodal foundation model learning and reasoning.

Research Interest

The ultimate research goal is building autonomous & assistive agents to perform intricate tasks that can:

  • perceive from informative & complex environments with multimodalities
  • reason from the available representations
  • predict feasible trajectories to perform complex tasks over a long-horizon setting
