Our research in inverse problems and imaging
Our research in the area of inverse problems and imaging is devoted to improving existing methodologies and developing new approaches for the identification of hidden targets from electromagnetic field measurements.
The identification of hidden targets has many important applications including:
- Improvements to airport and event security
- Detection of unexploded ordnance
- Improvement of food safety by the detection of foreign bodies
- Improving medical imaging for more accurate patient diagnosis
Current EPSRC funded interdisciplinary collaborative work involves teams of engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and medical practitioners.
Research is undertaken in partnership with Bath University, Cardiff University, University of Manchester and University of South Wales. Industrial partners including ABM University Health Trust.
These projects are aimed at finding new ways of classifying hidden targets and improving computational and algorithmic approaches for locating and characterising the objects.
