Ulugbek S. Kamilov received his Ph.D. degree from the department of Electrical Engineering, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in 2015.
Since 2015, he has been a Research Scientist with Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), Cambridge, MA, USA. His research develops computational techniques for solving inverse problems for applications in biomedical or industrial imaging. Prior to joining MERL, Ulugbek was an Exchange Student with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Pittsburgh, PA, USA, in 2007, a Visiting Student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, USA, in 2010, and a Visiting Student Researcher at Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, in 2013. His research interests include statistical estimation, signal and image processing, computational imaging, and machine learning.
I develop new methods for computational sensing and imaging. Specifically, my work covers three areas: (a) study of the physical measuremnt processes; (b) design of an inference algorithm that can turn the measurements into the desired image; (c) theoretical analysis of the algorithms. My work has been directly applied to various acquisition modalities such as optical tomographic microscopy, magnitic resonance imaging, radar, etc.
I continuously study various tools that would allow me to perform inference on large dimensional data in a more efficient way. In particular, probabilistic inference algorithms, machine learning techniques, and optimization methods are of high interest to me.
