Research interests

My research lies in the fields of mathematical image processing, non-smooth optimisation and non-linear PDEs. During my PhD I studied novel variational and PDE-based models for several imaging problems (denoising, inpainting, segmentation..) and used them to solve real-world problems. In my post-doctoral experience I broadened my skills working on non-smooth optimisation techniques for inverse problems. Recently, I further became interested in the development of mathematical PDE models for art conservation and computational neuroscience.
