Nice to meet you, my name is Wei Dong (董未). You can call me Wei, with the same pronunciation as Way. I’m from Huzhou (湖州), a small city near Shanghai.

I’m a researcher at Apple with Stephan Richter and Vladlen Koltun. I spent 9 months in the same team as a Postdoc before becoming a full-time employee. In the summer of 2023, I received my PhD in Robotics at Robotics Institute, CMU, advised by Michael Kaess. Before that, I obtained my Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees from Peking University, China, advised by Hongbin Zha. My CV can be found here.

In my leisure time, I’ve been one of the maintainers of Open3D. I play video games. FromSoftware is my favorite game studio. I also read and write fictions, run, bike, learn new languages, and play the piano. I live with my wife, our cats, and toys.
