Research Description

Professor Langer's research interests are in the areas of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and Human Vision.

The main goal of his research is to understand the visual appearance of the world. He develops mathematical models of various visual cues, including surface shading, shadows, colour, motion, perspective, and occlusions. His research is interdisciplinary, covering a wide range of problems in computer vision, human visual perception, and computer graphics.
