Welcome to  Das Laboratory for Imaging Innovations at the University of Houston. Our interdisciplinary work combines elements of Applied Physics, Optical physics, Image Science, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Medical Physics, Vision Science, and Psychophysics. We develop mathematical and analytical tools, computational  methods, bench-top experiments, and instrumentation. Our major projects are in advanced X-ray imaging techniques and perception/image science. We are also interested in developing multimodality platforms combining optical, ultrasound, and X-ray imaging systems. New areas of research include bioelectricity and biomagnetism for cancer research. These developments are geared towards solving a number of challenging problems in biological and medical imaging such as early stage cancer detection. However, the applications and impact of our work is much broader and extends into other areas including defense and security, materials science, biophysics, image science, and geoscience.
