In my research, I am studying inverse problems. Inverse problems concern the fitting of mathematical models to observational data. Consider, for instance, a mathematical model describing the weather development over the next couple of days. To use this model now to forecast the weather it need to be calibrated with regard to the current weather. Other examples of inverse problems are the training of machine learning models and the reconstruction of medical images from scanner data. I am contributing to the field of inverse problems by answering mathematical, statistical, and computational questions.
