We design instruments and techniques to sense and control physical systems. Medical devices and manufacturing inspection systems are a particular focus. We develop and combine electromechanical systems, complex algorithms, and computation systems to create instruments and measurement solutions for problems that are otherwise intractable.

Our research and product development interests cross the boundaries of computer vision, acoustic and ultrasonic imaging, large‐scale computation and simulation, optimization, metrology, autonomous systems, and robotics. We use computation, and computer science, as a methodology for attacking complex instrumentation problems – our work combines mathematical modeling, simulation, optimization, and experimental observations, to develop instruments and measurement solutions.
