Engaged primarily in advancing research of image decipherment.
Additionally, in development of basic technology for practical application in digital archiving, research delves into two areas:
- Analysis of reflection and gloss information derived from processing of high-definition image data, to enable control of reflection and gloss information in expression of form or shape.
- Restorative processing of three-dimensional shapes from analysis of micro-structures, to enable display of three-dimensional shapes with detailed expression.
