June 2015: Our paper "Isotropic inverse-problem approach for two-dimensional phase unwrapping" is among the top-10 most downloaded papers in the Journal of the Optical Society of America A for the month of June.
Ulugbek Kamilov obtained his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in 2015.
Ulugbek's PhD research developed statistical estimation techniques for solving inverse problems in biomicroscopy. His interests include signal acquisition and processing, signal representation, computational imaging, and resolution of inverse problems. Prior to joining to MERL in 2015, Ulugbek was an exchange student at Carnegie Mellon University in 2007, a visiting student at MIT in 2010, and a visiting student researcher at Stanford University.
I develop new methods for computational resolution of imaging inverse problems. 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 are of high interest to me at the moment.
