      Research Topics
    • Research Fields: Visual Computing, Computer Graphics, Multimedia, Computer Vision, Machine Learning

    • Research Interests: 3D Object Retrieval, 3D Modeling,  3D Scene Understanding, Deep Learning, 3D Computer Vision

    • I have great interest in diverse topics of 3D model retrieval, such as: Query-by-model, Query-by-sketch, Partial similarity retrieval as well as 3D model alignment.
      My PhD supervisor is Asst. Prof. 
      Henry Johan. My NIST supervisor is Computer Specialist Afzal Godil. My Texas State University Postdoc supervisor is Assoc. Prof. Yijuan Lu.

      During my PhD period, we mainly target visual similarity and hybrid approaches to solve different retrieval issues. We also did a full and novel research in 3D normalization and developed a simple but effective algorithm based on the idea of minimization of views' projection area (CGI paper "3D Model Alignment based on Minimum Projection Area"). In NIST, we targeted on local features and Bag-of-Words framework for non-rigid object retrieval. Currently, I am working on sketch-based 3D shape retrieval.


      Short Bio
      Dr. Bo Li is a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in the School of Computing at the University of Southern Mississippi. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) in 2012. He was a teacher in the School of Science at Xi’an Polytechnic University (China) from 2002 to 2007. From 2005 to 2007, he was a senior software testing engineer in ZTE Corporation in Xi'an, China. He was a Guest Researcher in National Institute of Standards and Technology (Gaithersburg, Maryland) from 2011 to 2012. From 2012 to 2014, he was a Postdoc in Texas State University (San Marcos, Texas). He was a Non-Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Central Missouri (Lee's Summit, Missouri) from 2015 to 2016. His current research interests in computer graphics focus on 3D object retrieval and 3D modeling and reconstruction. He is the recipient of the top first winners of 2013 and 2016 Eurographics SHERC competitions in large-scale sketch-based 3D retrieval track, range scan track, and low-cost depth-sensing camera track. He has published more than 30 journal and conference papers, including prestigious ones like CVIU, IJCV, and ICMR.
