At KAUST, I am developing next-generation hardware and software, co-design new functional cameras for metrology, microscopy and virtual reality applications, adding tiny but significant contributions to the emerging computational imaging revolution all over the world.

Congli Wang is a Ph. D. candidate in the Computational Imaging Group (VCCIMAGING) under the supervision of Professor Wolfgang Heidrich at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). 

Education and Early Career

Congli Wang obtained his bachelor of engineering in Electrical Engineering from Tianjin University in China in 2015. After that, he joined KAUST and received his master degree in Electrical Engineering in 2016.

Research Interest

Congli is focusing in his research on Wavefront Sensing, Adaptive Optics, Computational Imaging and Computational Photography. He is working on experimental optical setups and numerical algorithms based on physical priors.

Honors and Awards

Congli received the Special Prize at Tianjin College Physics Contest in 2013. He was awarded with the Tianjin University Thesis Funding Program in 2014.
