Computational Optical Imaging
We develop novel combinations of optical imaging systems and image processing algorithms ("computational imaging") for seeing what cannot be made visible with conventional optical imaging instrumentation. We apply this to achieve nanometer resolution with optical microscopy, to find light efficient ways to do 3D microscopy, to develop automated slide scanning solutions for digital pathology, and for generating volumetric views from single image snapshots.
