My research interests are at the intersection of computer graphics,
machine vision, optics, imaging, and perception. A significant portion
of my research in the past few years has been on high dynamic range
imaging and display devices. Brightside Technologies, a startup
company commercializing the first true HDR display technology was
acquired by Dolby Inc. in 2007. Since then, Brightside has been
transformed into Dolby Canada, am imaging research facility operating
out of Vancouver. In May 2008, Dolby funded my research chair to
support activities in HDR imaging and related topics.
