- Predictive simulation of light interactions with organic and inorganic materials
Although the main target of his work is the realistic modelling of material appearance for image synthesis, his research has also been directed toward investigating related problems in remote sensing and biomedical optics.
In remote sensing, they are used to monitor the effects of adverse environmental conditions on crops and forests.
In biomedical optics, they are used to develop procedures and equipment for the prevention, screening and treatment of different medical conditions.
