Research Interests

Applied mathematics, scientific computing. I have been working recently on mathematical and computational aspects of nonlinear inverse problems and imaging. These problems are important in many practical applications, for example medical and geophysical tomography, remote sensing, or the non-destructive testing of materials. Typical mathematical and numerical tools which are used can also be found in related areas like integral geometry, large scale optimization, optimal control, image processing, or computer vision, to mention only a few. Examples of my current research interests are the application of the linear transport model to diffuse optical tomography and molecular imaging, time reversal mirrors and their use for imaging in deterministic and random media, microwave medical imaging, adjoint field inversion techniques for nonlinear inverse problems, history matching in reservoir characterization, 3D electromagnetic induction tomography, and level set techniques for shape reconstruction problems in 2D and 3D.
