Donald Dansereau

Donald Dansereau is a senior lecturer at the University of Sydney and a Research Affiliate of the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision. His group develops new imaging and perception technologies to help robots see and do.

Dr. Dansereau’s pioneering research helped establish the field of light field image processing, and attracted a Governor General’s Gold Medal in 2004. His industry work has included physics engines for video games, computer vision for microchip packaging, and chip design for automated electronics testing. In 2014 he completed a PhD in plenoptic signal processing for underwater robotics at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics, University of Sydney, and joined the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision as a Research Fellow. Following a postdoctoral appointment at Stanford in 2016, he took up his present role, where he continues to develop new ways for robots to see the world.

In ongoing collaborations with ACRV researchers, Donald is exploring the joint design of optics, algorithms, and robotic embodiments. Specific applications are in all-weather driving, medical imaging, and robotic perception and control around transparent objects.
