About Me

David Li Profile Image

I am a Computer Science PhD student at the University of Maryland, College Park advised by Professor Amitabh Varshney. My current research interests are in delivering immersive content with 360 videos and neural representations. Previously, I have also worked on projects involving VR data visualization (MeteoVis) and interactive 3D graphics (Geollery).
