Department of Computer Science
Professor Xiao studies human and machine perception of physical properties of objects in dynamic scenes. She did her undergraduate work in physical chemistry at Tsinghua University. She received her PhD in Neuroscience from University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and did her post-doctoral research at brain and cognitive sciences and CSAL at MIT, and The Smith-kettlewell Eye research Institute in San Francisco. Her research focus on the intersection between human perception and computer science, where she applies visual psycho-physics, computer graphics, and computer vision technique to understated how humans perceive physical properties of an object use our perception to predict its likely future behavior, how we design machine algorithm to do the same, and how the brain identify important features of an object to process the physical properties.
