Imaging technology has been an important tool in scientific research as well as addressing the needs in healthcare, security, and manufacturing. Imaging systems project real-world, multi-dimensional signals onto the measurement space of the sensors. Computational Imaging is concerned with optimizing the measurement basis in order to maximize the specific information of interest while minimizing system resources. In this talk I will demonstrate the capabilities of Computational Imaging using two examples, namely low-cost fluorescence microscopy and high-throughput X-ray scattering imaging.
The Fluorescence Talbot Microscope (FTM) is a portable fluorescence microscopy platform on a low-cost CMOS imaging sensors (~ $2). Because of its potential for inexpensive mass production, the FTM is a viable tool for low-resource setting diagnosis.
Coded Aperture X-ray Scattering Imaging (CAXSI) system taking multiplexed measurements can greatly improve the imaging speed while providing material-specific scattering signature. CAXSI is a promising technology for high-throughput checkpoint baggage scanners.

Shuo Pang is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from California Institute of Technology in 2013. He is the first author of 7 peer-reviewed journal publications in biomedical optics and micro/nano technologies, and has 2 patents (5 pending) in imaging devices. His current research interests include creating novel imaging systems in the visible and x-ray regime using computational methods.
