Computational Harmonic Analysis & Machine Learning

  • Our scientific interests focus on harmonic analysis, inverse problems, PDE and machine learning according to the following belief:

    The analysis of massive, high-dimensional, noisy, time-varying data sets has become a critical issue for a large number of scientists and engineers. Major theoretical and algorithmic advances in analyzing massive and complex data are crucial, including methods of exploiting sparsity, clustering and classification, data mining, anomaly detection, and many more.

  • In the last decade we have witnessed significant advances in many individual core areas of data analysis, including machine learning, signal processing, statistics, optimization, and of course harmonic analysis. It appears highly likely that the next major breakthroughs will occur at the intersection of these disciplines (from Applied Harmonic Analysis, Massive Data Sets, Machine Learning, and Signal Processing).

  • Inverse Problems for PDEs

    We are interested in inverse problems for elliptic and hyperbolic equations, including Calderon's problem for electrical impedance tomography (EIT), photo-acoustic tomography (PAT), inverse scattering, Gel'fand-Calderon's problem.
