Ellen Hildreth explores human vision through the creation of computational models of visual processing and observations from perceptual experiments. Her work focuses on the analysis of three-dimensional structure and movement of objects through the integration of cues from image motion and stereo vision, and the use of this information for tasks such as visual recognition and navigation. Prof. Hildreth teaches an advanced course on vision that combines the study of computer vision systems with observations from psychology and neuroscience about the visual processing strategies used in biological systems. She also teaches an introductory course in which students learn the MATLAB programming language and develop valuable computer skills for the support of scientific work.
