Example Research Title:
Ray Tracing / Sensor Visualization
Global Illumination (left) Sensor Visualization (right)
Working on techniques to reduce bias and variance in ray traced scenes. The top spheres image shows traditional photon mapping with low bias but high variance. Our methods are able to remove this noise to produce clean images with low bias. We do this by producing photon maps such as the one pictured in grey.
Working on techniques to offer succinct visualizations and labelling of sensor data (in this case accelerometry data from sensors on animals).
