Graduate Fellow: Felix Heide (2015)

Felix Heide from Netphen, Germany

Studying at the University of British Columbia

Research: Felix's interests are focused around numerical optimization methods for large scale inverse problems in computational imaging and vision. He is using GPUs to enable otherwise prohibitive algorithms for statistically motivated image and vision reconstruction tasks such as Non-line-of-sight imaging using Time-of-flight sensors, where the goal is to "make the invisible visible".
