Wei Zeng

Assistant Professor


Dr. Wei Zeng is an assistant professor of the School of Computing and Information Sciences at Florida International University. Dr. Zeng received her Ph.D. from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2008 and had her postdoctoral training at Stony Brook University in 2010-2012. She also worked at Microsoft Research Asia and Stony Brook University during her graduate study. Her Ph.D. thesis was titled “Computational Conformal Geometry Based Shape Analysis”. She has published numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals (e.g., IEEE TPAMI, IEEE TVCG, IJCV) and conferences (e.g., ICCV, ECCV, CVPR, VIS, SPM, IPMI, MICCAI, INFOCOM, IPSN) and a book by Springer, won a Best paper award in CAD/CAM (IJCC 2009), and has two U.S. patents on virtual colonoscopy techniques.
