Optimization and Data Analytics

Data analytics, still not quite well defined, can be regarded as the collective science of processing and/or analyzing data for the purpose of knowledge discovery. In this respect, it encompasses parts of statistics, mathematics, machine learning, computer science, and any other field that involves data processing and/or analysis. Linear, Nonlinear and Nonsmooth Function minimization on discrete and continuous domains. Particular interests include optimization on graphs and discrete structures, Blackbox and Derivative-Free methods, applications in data and image analysis and ill-posed inverse problems.

Examples of research projects past and present: sparse dynamic tomography, the development of image metrics which ignore unimportant differences, the sharp characterization of minimizers to variational functionals like the L1TV and ROF functionals, the flat norm for images and shapes, analysis and geometric measure theory in metric spaces, and the propagation of uncertainty through image analysis.
