Shaowei Liu

I’m a CS PhD student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, being advised by Prof. Saurabh Gupta and Prof. Shenlong Wang.

I received my master's degree in Computer Science from UCSD, advised by Prof. Xiaolong Wang. Before that, I received my bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University.

My research interests lie in computer vision and robotics. I am interested in 3D vision, generative model and the intersection of vision and robotics.
