National Science Foundation awarded Professor Felix Heide NSF CAREER award
Heide is an Assistant Professor in the CS department and leads the Princeton Computational Imaging lab. The CAREER award will support the lab's work to develop and optimize cameras to be used in a variety of domains including medical imaging, robotics, scientific imaging, virtual/artificial reality, and self-driving vehicles. The research efforts are also tightly integrated with an outreach program that introduces underrepresented and at-risk students in the New Jersey and New York area to science and technology through domain-specific cameras for self-driving vehicles.
The award supports junior faculty members who have demonstrated exceptional ability in scientific leadership, education or community outreach. It amounts to approximately $500,000 in research funding over a period of five years.
