Pengfei Li

I am Pengfei Li, a third-year Ph.D. student in University of California, Riverside, under the supervision of Prof. Shaolei Ren. I obtained a M.S.E degree in Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR), Johns Hopkins University, under the supervision of Prof. Alan Yuille and Prof. Gregory Hager.

Prior to joining JHU, I graduated from Zhejiang University with honors, majoring in Electrical Engineering. I was also a member of Advanced Class of Engineering Education(ACEE) in Chu Kochen Honor College. In summer 2017, I took part in the International Summer Research Program in UCSD under the supervision of Prof. Atanasov as a research intern.
