Profile Summary

Craig K. Abbey received his PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Arizona in 1998. He was a postdoctoral fellow in medical physics at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and UCLA from 1998 to 2001. From 2001 to 2004 he was a member of the faculty in biomedical engineering at UC Davis. His primary affiliation is in the Dept. of Psychological and Brain Science at UC Santa Barbara. His research focuses on how useful diagnostic information is extracted from images in the presence of noise and other signal distortions. Methods for investigating this topic include theoretical analysis of image statistics as well as visual psychophysics for evaluating human observer performance.
