Dan Witzner Hansen investigates to which extend information from images of eyes can be obtained through computationally tractable techniques and how this information can be used in future applications.

His focus is  on robust methods for extracting information from the eyes. He investigate how this information can be employed as a part of the next generation of contactless and continuous biometric identification modalities and how it can be used for the general public everyday and out-of-laboratory use. His research covers aspects from computer vision, machine learning, HCI, neuroscience and psychology. Among other things the has contributed to the research in eye-based biometric markers and development of novel and low-cost gaze trackers. These eye trackers have together with novel gaze-based interaction techniques been used for interaction for physically disabled persons with great success.
