April 2015: My PhD Thesis "Sparsity-Driven Statistical Inference for Inverse Problems" is now available online.

April 2015: Our manuscript "Inference for Generalized Linear Models via Alternating Directions and Bethe Free Energy Minimization" was accepted to ISIT 2015. It was co-authored with Prof. Sundeep Rangan, Prof. Alyson Fletcher, and Prof. Phil Schniter.

April 2015: On Thursday, April 23 at 8:30–10:30, in Poster Area A of ICASSP 2015, I will be presenting our work "Variational Justification of Cycle Spinning for Wavelet-Based Solutions of Inverse Problems." This is a joint work with Emrah Bostan and Prof. Michael Unser.

Ulugbek Kamilov received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in 2015.

In 2007-08, he was an exchange student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. In 2008, he worked as a research intern at the Telecommunications Research Center in Vienna, Austria. In 2009, he worked as a software engineering intern at Microsoft. In 2010-11, he was a visiting student in the Research Laboratory of Electronics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 2013, he was a visiting student researcher in the Information Systems Laboratory at Stanford University.

Since February 2015, he is with the Multimedia Group at MERL. His research interest lies in the development of advanced algorithms for solving inverse problems.

I develop statistical models and algorithms for the reconstruction of biomedical images from highly undersampled or distorted measurements. Such problems are common in various image acquisition modalities such as tomography, magnitic resonance, bio-microscopy, astronomy, etc.

I am interested in the development of iterative algorithms that allow to perform inference on large dimensional data in an efficient way. In particular, message-passing algorithms on graphical models are of high interest to me at the moment.
