Dr Lichti joined the Department of Geomatics Engineering and the Centre for Bioengineering Research and Education in January 2008. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Survey Engineering from Ryerson University and MSc and PhD degrees in Geomatics Engineering from the University of Calgary. His overall research program is focused on developing geomatics engineering solutions for the exploitation of optical and range-imaging sensors, primarily time-of-flight range cameras and laser scanning systems, for the automated creation of accurate, 3D models of measuring human motion, monitoring structural deformation, mineral comminuting and fluid mechanics. His expertise spans includes sensor modelling and calibration, 3D data registration and object recognition.
He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.
