Dr. Xi Peng is an assistant professor of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences, and a resident faculty of the Data Science Institute, at the University of Delaware.

Dr. Peng works in the area of Deep Learning, Machine Learning, and Computer Vision, with a special interest in two directions: 1) Efficient & explainable deep learning; 2) Human-centered computer vision. He is making efforts in developing strong, flexible, and transparent AI systems for interdisciplinary data analytics in biomechanics, bioinformatics, geography, and earth science.

Dr. Peng’s group (Deep-REAL lab) are publishing in top-ranked conferences (NeurIPS, ICLR, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, AAAI, IJCAI, KDD), leading journals (TPAMI, IJCV, THMS), as well as US patents. His group received awards and supports from NSF, CDC/NIOSH, Snap Research, DSI, etc.
