Dr. Rui Li is a visiting assistant professor at Rochester Institute of Technology. He graduated in Computer Science from Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in 2003. He earned his PhD in Computing and Information Science at Rochester Institute of Technology. After his graduation, he worked as a post-doctoral research associate in Computer Science Department at University of Rochester.

His graduate work focused on understanding dermatologistsí diagnostic reasoning processes using probabilistic machine learning approaches. He is interested in designing, developing, and evaluating dermatological image organization and retrieval systems by allowing machine learning models evolve based on dermatologistsí direct manipulation of the medical images via friendly visualization interfaces. His dermatologist-centered system design allows dermatologists to interactively explore the dermatological image space and drive machine learning models towards intended behaviors. The interplay between dermatologists and models results in an incremental process of image organization to meet expertsí needs and expectation.
