Nianyi Li is a postdoctoral associate in  IVLAB of Louisiana State University (LSU). She is currently working with Prof. Jinwei Ye  in the Computer Science Department. Before that, she worked in the Carl E Ravin Advanced Imaging Laboratories (RAI Labs) at Duke University as Postdoc for one and a half years with Prof. Maciej Mazurowski in Radiology Department. She received her Ph.D. Degree in Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Delaware, under the supervision of Prof. Jingyi Yu. She earned a B.E. Degree in Electronic and Information Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Her research interests are in object detection, image super-resolution, light field rendering, and medical image segmentation.

Research Interests

I am a computational imaging and computer vision researcher who wants to redefine what it means to capture a photograph of a scene and what’s the most important content of a scene. Leveraging new captured dimensions of light and the use of the latest deep learning techniques, my future research will build imaging systems for computer vision and human-computer interaction. I imagine visual computing systems, co-design with machine learning and signal processing can be transformative in our lives.
