Lehigh IDEA Lab

At the Image Data Emulation and Analysis (IDEA) Lab at Lehigh University, we conduct both theoretical and applied research in the areas of biomedical image analysis, computer vision and computer graphics. A central theme of the research is to analyze images and videos and extract meaningful information from them for interpretation, quantification, modeling and synthesis. The current focus of the lab is on developing robust and novel methods for segmentation, matching/registration, deformable object modeling, skeletonization, recognition, and tracking. We also work on multi-modal data structuring, querying, integration, and visualization.
