Computer vision, imaging and cross-modal analysis. Influencing the sensing process to extract enhanced information about scenes (computational photography). Computational analysis of the acquired data by accounting for optical and other physical processes of image formation.
Resulting studies include:
Tomographic atmospheric recovery; imaging through refractive distortions (virtual periscope); imaging through turbid (scattering) media e.g., overcoming haze and underwater imaging; Spaceborne multiview recovery; illumination multiplexing; synthesis of unconventional propagation modes of light waves; 3D shape estimation based on defocus PSF's; separation and reconstruction of semireflections and transparent layers; high dynamic range imaging; polarization and multispectral imaging; radiometric self-calibration; overcoming and exploiting lens-flare and random illumination caustics; recovery limits under pointwise degradations; audio-visual analysis.
Some of these studies involve statistical frameworks to achieve blind estimation.
