Welcome to Laboratory of Applied Computational Imaging (LACI)!

Our group is dedicated to the development of novel optical imaging techniques and devices for physics and biomedicine.

Our group is always open to students (undergraduate internship and graduate research assistantship) and postdocs (fellowship). Please email your resume to Prof. Jinyang Liang (jinyang.liang@emt.inrs.ca) if you are interested in joining us.
