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 and bench top experiments/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. 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 span other areas such a defense and security, materials science, biophysics, image science and geoscience.

Research key words: Optical Physics, X-Ray imaging, Optical components, Spectral imaging, Bio-photonics, Medical imaging, Tomography, Photon counting x-ray detectors, Phase contrast imaging, Tomographic reconstruction methods for sparse data, Image science, machine learning, Image perception, Microscopy.

We are located in the Science and Research Building 1 (SR1), Room 419 on UH main Campus.
