OOI Wei Tsang

Associate Professor

  • Ph.D. (Computer Science, Cornell University, 2001)
  • B.Sc. (Computer & Information Sciences, National University of Singapore, 1996)

Wei Tsang received his B.Sc. (Hon.) degree in 1996 from the Department of Information Systems and Computer Science at NUS (now NUS Computing), and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, in 2001. He spent a year as a postdoc fellow at Berkeley Multimedia Research Center in U.C. Berkeley after the completion of his Ph.D., before returning to join NUS Computing as a faculty member. Wei Tsang’s research interests fall under the general area of interactive and networked multimedia applications. His current research focuses on volumetric video streaming, networked virtual environments, and cloud gaming systems. He is also keen in building multimedia and intelligent systems that contribute to better wellness and healthcare for all.
