Overview

Xuelei Hu is a Research Fellow since 2013 in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland.

Xuelei received her Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, M.Phil. in Pattern Recognition and Intelligence System and B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering from Nanjing University of Science and Technology. In 2005, she joined the academics of the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Nanjing University of Science and Technology. From Feb. 2009 to Feb. 2010, she worked as a Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.

Her research interests lie in the area of machine learning, ranging from theory to application, with a recent focus on developing advanced data analysis techniques for healthcare problems. She has collaborated actively with researchers in other disciplines, particularly medicine, statistics, computer vision, robotics, and software engineering.
