Image Processing and Analysis

We are interested in a broad range of image processing and analysis problems. Of our particular interest are:

  • Image interpolation and registration on serial sectioning data
  • Mesh generation from images
  • Image segmentation (both graph-based and level set methods)
  • 3D surface reconstruction from 2D images

  • Geometric (Mesh) Modeling and Processing

    This project involves a number of mesh generation and processing problems:

  • Feature-preserving surface mesh smoothing (reducing mesh bumpiness)
  • Quality-guaranteed surface mesh smoothing (improving angle distribution)
  • High-quality tetrahedral mesh generation from surface meshes
  • 3D shape descriptor and shape retrieval

  • Molecular Shape Modeling

    In this project we aim to explore the following specific problems:

  • High-quality surface and volumetric mesh generation from molecules
  • Effective geometric measurements and analysis of molecular surfaces
  • Non-rigid molecular shape matching

  • Scientific Computing and Visualization

    We are interested in scientific computing and 3D visualization, including:

  • Radial basis functions in interpolation and eigenanalysis of 3D point clouds
  • GPU-based parallel computing in biomedical simulations
  • Efficient visualization of 3D images and simulated data
