Electrical and Computer Engineering
We develop computational imaging systems that combine new hardware and software designs to collect and compute images in situations where regular imaging is impossible. This includes imaging around corners, through scattering materials such as fog or human tissue, over bright ambient light, and at very large distances. To achieve this we build measurement systems that capture aspects of the light field that are ignored by a regular camera, such as the time the light takes to travel through a scene, and develop algorithms to process and interpret this new information.
While many state of the art methods like optical coherence tomography and confocal microscopy provide ways of removing scattered light from an image, we attempt to utilize this light as an additional information source.
