Sizhe Lester Li



I am a PhD student at MIT CSAIL working with Vincent Sitzmann and Josh Tenenbaum. Previously, I completed my B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Rochester. My research is partly supported by the MIT Presidential Fellowship.

I am interested in building inverse models that capture the rich and structured representation of the physical world from unstructured observation. To this end, my research draws ideas from vision+graphics, computational cognitive science, and robotics.

To master/undergraduate students: If you would like to chat about life, career, or AI/ML research, feel free to email me. I encourage students from underrepresented groups to reach out and will prioritize replying to these messages.
