Awards & Distinctions

David Jones Brady obtained his Master’s degree and PhD in applied physics from California Institute of Technology, USA. He is the J.W. and H.M. Goodman Endowed Professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona, USA and was previously on the faculty at the University of Illinois, USA and Duke University, USA.

His work focuses on computational imaging and spectroscopy with a particular focus on the estimation of high-dimensional objects from low-dimensional measurements. With compressive holography, for example, Brady explored the estimation of 3D objects from 2D holograms. At Duke University, he led the AWARE program to create the first terrestrial gigapixel cameras. His recent work focuses on camera arrays for extreme multidimensional imaging. Brady also has a long-standing interest in artificial neural networks ranging from his PhD thesis on optical networks to current work on real-time neural processing of large-scale array data. His work is used in commercial x-ray, millimeter wave, mass spectrometry, and optical spectrometry systems, with work on high-resolution cameras being developed through Aqueti, Inc. and Baseball Cloud.

He has received several honors, including the Emmett N. Leith Medal, the Dennis Gabor Award, and the Stansel Family Distinguished Research Award. He is a Fellow of Optica, IEEE and SPIE.
