Dr. Barrett is best known for his landmark research with interactive segmentation tools, namely the Intelligent Scissors. The technology was later adapted into Adobe Photoshops Magnetic Lasso tool. He runs the Computer Graphics, Vision, and Image Processing Lab. One of his recent focuses has been handwriting recognition, particularly that of historical documents.
Robert P. Burton
Dr. Burton founded the Hyperdimensional Research Group early in his career at BYU. Dr. Burton's research explores ways to solve the problems of graphically representing higher-dimensional phenomena. Recently he has worked on a system for visualization and interactive navigation of a four-dimensional maze and another system for multidimensional time.
Dr. Parris Egbert's research interests include real-time 3D computer graphics, object oriented graphics, vector field tools for computer animation, and the creation and navigation of virtual environments. Dr. Egbert directs the Advanced 3D Computer Graphics Lab, which works on creating and improving techniques in virtual photography and environments, light in computer-generated images, and cognitive modeling in animation.
Dr. Morse teaches and researches image processing and analysis, computer vision, and computer graphics. Dr. Morse directs the Image Processing Lab. Some of his research projects with students include patch-based image synthesis and editing, stereo-image editing, and UAV-enabled wilderness search and rescue.
