Tzu Mao Li
Faculty, Computer Science and Engineering
Computer graphics, image processing algorithms, data science
Li connects classical computer graphics and image processing algorithms with modern data-driven methods to facilitate physical exploration. His work added 3D understanding to computer vision models; used data to improve camera imaging pipeline quality; and made light transport simulation faster by using information implicitly defined by rendering programs.
Before joining UC San Diego, Li was a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He earned his Ph.D. at MIT.
