Welcome to Chongyi Li (李重仪)'s Homepage


2021/10 - , I am a Research Assistant Professor with the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

2020/01 - 2021/10, I was a research fellow at the MMLab@NTU and worked with Dr. Chen Change Loy, School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

2018/10 - 2020/01, I was a postdoctoral fellow and worked with Chair Prof. Sam Kwong (IEEE Fellow), Department of Computer Science, City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Kowloon, Hong Kong.

2016/12 - 2017/12, I was a joint Ph.D. student at Research School of Engineering, Australian National University (ANU), Canberra, Australia, under the supervision of Prof. Fatih Porikli (IEEE Fellow).

2014/09 - 2018/07, I was a Ph.D. student at School of Electrical and Information Engineering, Tianjin University (TJU), Tianjin, China, under the supervision of Prof. Jichang Guo.


Research Interests:

    My primary reseach interests include artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, and image processing, particularly in the domains of

  • Image and Video Restoration and Enhancement The purpose is to develop algorithms to process an image or video so that result is more suitable than original image or video for specific application. The specific research topics are
    1. restoring and enhancing the images and videos captured in adverse weather (hazy, foggy, sandy, dusty, rainy, snowy day)
    2. restoring and enhancing the images and videos captured in special circumstances or devices (underwater, weak illumination, dark, under-display devices)
    3. general photo enhancement, auto image retouching
    4. image/depth super-resolution, image deblurring, image denosing
  • Multi-Modality Scene Understanding The purpose is to design AI models to perceive and understand scenes. The specific research topics are
    1. RGB-D salient object detection
    2. co-salient object detection
    3. remote sensing image salient object detection
