Research Themes

Mobile Visual Computing
and Digital Imaging

Changing the way we image, display and capture the visual world by developing techniques to capture the environment via mobile devices, improved computational imaging, computer vision in the wild, and advanced rendering on mobile platforms.

Interactive Digital
(Augmented) Reality

Achieving real-time photorealism; the creation of photograph-quality images at interactive frame rates to enable digital reality rendered in real-time. Developing the ability to render and mix real and virtual content seamlessly and realistically in real-time.

Understanding People
and their Surroundings

Automating computer understanding of our visual world, from the imaging of small-scale underwater organisms, to everyday environments, to the scale of a large city. Applications include city forensics and recognition of urban tribes, such as bikers or surfers.
