Position: Lecturer


My main research interests are primarily related to computational imaging, and machine learning, in particular for low-dose poly-energetic 3D/4D and spectral X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) reconstruction.

My particular specialism and passionate interests span to randomized linear algebra, stochastic iterative algorithms and variational inference models.

I am dealing with all aspects of the image reconstruction, from the theoretical mathematical modelling, through the algorithm development, to the handling and processing of experimental CT data together with physical modeling such as scattering.
