Research interests

Computational photography, imaging and cross-modal analysis. Influencing the sensing process to extract enhanced information about scenes. Computational data analysis by accounting for optical and other physical processes of image formation.

Resulting studies include:

Tomographic atmospheric recovery; refractive distortions; imaging through turbid (scattering) media e.g., haze and underwater imaging; Orbital multiview recovery; illumination multiplexing; 3D shape estimation based on defocus and diffracted-rotated PSFs; separation and reconstruction of semireflections and transparent layers; 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 the studies involve statistical frameworks to achieve blind estimation. Here is a Wordl based on the research page:

Brief bio

B.A. in Physics '90
MSc in Physics '94
PhD in Electrical Eng. '99
All my degrees are from the Technion.
Then, Research Scientist in Columbia U. '00-'02. I was a Visiting Associate in Caltech, collaborating with NASA's JPL '10-'11.
Now an Associate Professor in the Technion's Elect. Eng. Dept. More details are in my CV.
