Bei Xiao

Assistant Professor
Department of Computer Science

  • Additional Positions at AU

    Faculty Member, Center of Behavioral Neuroscience
  • Professor Xiao studies human and machine perception of dynamic scenes. She did her undergraduate work in 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. At AU, she is particularly interested in exploring how human adults use multisensory inputs such as vision, audition and haptics to make inferences of object physical properties in dynamic scenes. In the meantime, she is interested in applying perceptual results and models in simulation of virtual scenes using computer graphics that create rich multi-sensory experiences.
