Event description

Description

‎Abstract:
Computational imaging involves the joint design of imaging system hardware and software, optimizing across the entire pipeline from acquisition to reconstruction. This talk will describe new methods for computational microscopy with coded illumination, based on a simple and inexpensive hardware modification of a commercial microscope. Traditionally, one must trade field-of-view for resolution; with our methods we can have both, resulting in Gigapixel-scale images with resolution beyond the diffraction limit of the system. Our reconstruction algorithms are based on large-scale nonlinear non-convex optimization procedures for phase retrieval.


Laura Waller leads the Computational Imaging Lab, which develops new methods for optical imaging, with optics and computational algorithms designed jointly. She holds the Ted Van Duzer Endowed Professorship and is a Senior Fellow at the Berkeley Institute of Data Science (BIDS), with affiliations in Bioengineering and Applied Sciences & Technology. Laura was a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lecturer of Physics at Princeton University from 2010-2012 and received BS, MEng and PhD degrees from MIT in 2014, 2015 and 2010, respectively. She is a Moore Foundation Data-Driven Investigator, Bakar fellow, Distinguished Graduate Student Mentoring awardee, NSF CAREER awardee and Packard Fellow.
