My research is in computational vision, in particular how to integrate mechanisms for visual recognition and perceptual organization with 3D scene understanding. We apply these computational models to a variety of problems including forensic science and biological imaging. We have substantially on developing tools for biological image and shape analysis in order to measure morphology and spatial patterns of gene expression in neuroscience and animal development.
