John Colin McEachen II, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Electrical Engineering

Research Interests:

Application of adaptive estimation techniques in the analysis of image sequences. Specifically, tracking the point-wise motion of multi-dimensional surfaces over an entire image sequence using suitable temporal and spatial models.
