My group works in computer vision with an emphasis on the interpretation of video and the understanding of human behavior, in particular the social behavior of children. I am leading a large multi-institution effort to develop the science and technology of behavior imaging— methods for sensing and modeling behavior to support the diagnosis, treatment, and understanding of developmental disorders such as autism. A related area of interest is video interpretation and dynamic scene understanding, where we have developed novel video segmentation methods based on temporal causal analysis. A third area is perception for robotics, with specific projects in autonomous high-speed driving (the autonomous rally car project) and manipulation in clutter using the PR-2 robot from Willow Garage. Projects are available in all of these areas.
