Imaging of biological phenomena at various spatial and temporal scales provides the data necessary for modeling anatomy and function of the human body and brain. Example biological phenomena we study include molecular structure of tissues, cell development, anatomical variability, inner ear dynamics. We develop new imaging techniques, as well as novel methods for extracting relevant biological information from images. Courses in signal processing and stochastic estimation provide a useful background. Additionally, we offer courses on many aspects of biomedical signal processing in each of the specialized areas of research.
