Sizhe Lester Li



I am an incoming PhD student at MIT CSAIL. I am fortunate to receive the MIT Presidential Fellowship.

I recently completed my B.S. in Computer Science with the highest honors in research at the University of Rochester. During my undergrad, I was a visiting student at MIT hosted by Josh Tenenbaum, working closely with Chuang Gan.

I am interested in building inverse models that learn to caputure the rich and structured representation of our world from unstructured observation, through physical interactions of embodied agents. To this end, my research draws ideas from robotics, vision, graphics, and computational cognitive science.
