The Computational Imaging and Visualization Analysis lab is in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Missouri and collaboratively develops algorithms, tools and software for quantifying visual information and facilitating discoveries in STEMM. CIVA conducts research on computational aspects of computer vision, image processing, visualization, algorithm parallelization, high performance computing, machine learning and mathematical methods for image & video understanding. Application areas center around wide area motion imagery, full motion video for defense biometrics. In the biological and biomedical areas we are focused on multiscale systems biology and phenomics from sub-cellular to tissue scale analysis for understanding function and disease processes. Our research has been funded by DoD, NIH, NSF, NASA and NGA.
