Academic Areas: optical engineering

Li Wei is an assistant professor in School of Optical and Electronic Information, HUST. Her research interests: Optoelectronic Sensing and Imaging; optical scattering theory; fiber sensing technology. She focuses on how light propagates in water? How light scattered on small marine particles? How to shape those small particles by their optical characteristics? how to detect marine objects by optical imaging technology? She co-authored over 20 papers in the leading scholarly journals in optics and physics. She supervises several projects supported by NSFC, CSIC and etc.
