Laura Waller, Ph.D.Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, University of California, Berkeley
Simons Foundation Presidential Lectures are free public colloquia centered on four main themes: Biology, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Neuroscience and Autism Science. These curated, high-level scientific talks feature leading scientists and mathematicians and are intended to foster discourse and drive discovery among the broader NYC-area research community. We invite anyone interested in the topic to join us for this weekly lecture series.
Computational imaging involves the joint design of imaging system hardware and software, optimizing the entire pipeline from acquisition to reconstruction. Computers can replace bulky and expensive optics by solving computational inverse problems that reconstruct images from scattered light.
In this talk, Laura Waller will describe new microscopes that use computational imaging to enable 3D aberration and phase measurement using simple hardware that is easily adoptable combined with advanced image reconstruction algorithms based on large-scale optimization and learning.
