Dr. Qi Guo


Nanjing, China

What inspired you to get into engineering?

My childhood hobbies. When I was a kid, I was fascinated with building Legos. In particular, I liked to build things out of my mind and I never followed the instruction manuals. Nowadays, doing research in engineering gives me the same feeling as playing with Legos. To me, engineering is like playing.

What are your research interests?

My research is very interdisciplinary. It involves computer vision, computational photography, machine learning, and optics.

What drew you to Purdue ECE?

The diverse, excellent research that Purdue ECE faculty do and the vibrant, diligent, and bright students here at Purdue ECE.

What classes do you teach?

I can teach broad range of classes in the CNSIP area, such as signal processing and machine learning. 

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like reading, watching movies, and playing basketball.
