Michael LangerAssociate Professor, School of Computer Science
Member, Center for Intelligent Machines (CIM)
BioI grew up in Toronto. I received a B.Sc. in Math from McGill (1986), an M.Sc. in Computer Science from U. Toronto (1988), and Ph.D. from the Dept. of Electrical Engineering from McGill (1994). I was a postdoc at the NEC Research Institute, and at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics where I was a Humboldt Research Fellow. I returned to McGill as a professor in 2000. See below for how I've been spending some of my time since.

ResearchMy main research areas are computer vision and human visual perception. I work mostly on 3D vision problems, e.g. shape from shading, shadows, specular reflection and depth from defocus, motion parallax and binocular disparity. I have also worked on scene layout perception e.g. clutter, and material perception.
Here are my Publications and the Students I've worked with.
