Welcome to IVRL
The Image and Visual Representation Lab (IVRL) performs research that is primarily focused on the capture, analysis, and reproduction of color images. Aiming to improve everyone’s photographic experience, we develop algorithms and systems that help us understand, process, and measure images.
Our research areas are computational photography, color image processing, computer vision, and image quality.
