Meet the People at the BHI

Katie Bouman

BHI Graduate Student Alum; Assistant Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences
California Institute of Technology


I am a Rosenberg Scholar and Assistant Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) and by courtesy in Electrical Engineering and Astronomy at Caltech in Pasadena, California. My research focuses on computational imaging: designing systems that tightly integrate algorithm and sensor design, making it possible to observe phenomena previously difficult or impossible to measure with traditional approaches. My group at Caltech combines ideas from signal processing, computer vision, machine learning, and physics to find and exploit hidden signals for both scientific discovery and technological innovation.
