Associate Professor, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Email: Office: EECS BuildingWebsiteResearch Interests: Pei’s research interest surrounds “Structures as Sensors”, which utilizes the physical properties of devices and structures (e.g. cars, buildings, rooms) as a sensor to discover physical information that surrounds them (e.g. people, roads, animals). As part of this, his work focuses on combining machine learning-based data models, physics models, as well as heuristic models to improve the understanding of the physical systems. His approach is applied to many fields including medicine, eldercare, farming, smart buildings.
