Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988

My main area of research is computer vision, and my recent work focuses on the problems of geometric shape comparison, model-

based motion tracking and image segmentation. My approach to these problems involves a combination of theoretical analysis, algorithm design, implementation, and experimentation. The overall goal is to produce systems that work well in practice and have a firm underlying theoretical and algorithmic foundation. My group is developing vision systems for use in several application areas, including remote video surveillance and interactive document systems. Our work on interactive documents focuses on the use of images and video in learning and collaboration tools.
