Inverse Problems, PDE's, Integral Geometry
Prof. Hanming Zhou received his PhD in 2015 from University of Washington, under the direction of Gunther Uhlmann. Prior to coming to UCSB, Dr. Zhou was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. Dr. Zhou's research focuses on the mathematical analysis of inverse problems and their connections with concrete applications, often motivated by problems arising in medical imaging, geophysics, classical and quantum mechanics, and astronomy, among other areas. His work is at the interface of several disciplines including partial differential equations (PDEs), differential geometry, harmonic analysis and mathematical physics and has become an important area of research due in part to its potential applications.
