Seeing at a Glance: Psychophysical and fMRI Studies on Rapid Natural Scene Perception

Fei-Fei LiPrinceton University

Prof. Fei-Fei Li's main research interest is in vision, particularly high-level visual recognition. In computer vision, Fei-Fei’s interests span from object and natural scene categorization to human activity categorizations in both videos and still images. In human vision, she has studied the interaction of attention and natural scene and object recognition, and decoding the human brain fMRI activities involved in natural scene categorization by using pattern recognition algorithms. Fei-Fei graduated from Princeton University in 1999 with a physics degree, and a minor in engineering physics. She received her PhD in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 2005. From 2005 to the end of 2006, Fei-Fei was an assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Princeton University. She also holds courtesy appointments in the Psychology Department and the Neuroscience Program at Princeton. She is a recipient of the 2006 Microsoft Research New Faculty Fellowship.
