Prof. Coralia Cartis

Assoc. Prof. Cartis’ research is on optimization, algorithm development, analysis and implementation for a variety of problem classes (linear, convex, nonconvex, smooth/nonsmooth, stochastic), suitable for large scale. In the past few years, her research focused on complexity of nonconvex optimization problems; compressed sensing; parameter estimation for climate modelling. Currently, she is investigating optimization methods for […]

Prof. Jared Tanner

Prof. Tanner’s research concerns extracting models of high dimensional date which reveal of the essential information in the data.  Specific contributions include the derivation of sampling theorems in compressed sensing using techniques from stochastic geometry and the design and analysis of efficient algorithms for matrix completion which minimise over higher dimensional subspaces as the reliability of the data warrants. […]
