Research Interests

My research interests are in the field of theoretical image science with emphasis on medical imaging. I currently study task-based measures of image quality in which one must define the task the images are to be used for and the observer who will be performing this task, to properly measure and optimize the quality of images and imaging systems. We take the stance that imaging systems should be designed to best enable the observer to detect tumors and not base design decisions on resolution, contrast, etc. Topics in my research group include accurate system modeling, statistical modeling, observer performance metrics, signal-detection theory and general image science.
