Andreas Hauptmann

Doctoral student



I have finished my PhD and moved to a new position at the Centre for Medical Image Computing in University College London. (Link)

As an applied mathematician with a focus on computational mathematics I am interested in inverse problems with real measurement data, in particular applications to medical imaging.

In my PhD thesis I investigate the problem of partial-boundary data in electrical impedance tomography (EIT), a non-invasive imaging modality that seeks to recover the conductivity of a body from electrical measurements taken at its surface. EIT is a highly non-linear ill-posed inverse problem that needs careful analysis of the underlying mathematics.My work in EIT focuses on developing noise robust sharp images from limited boundary data (e.g. a patient lying on their back or faulty electrodes).

Furthermore, I am interested in dynamic imaging and regularization strategies. That is given a set of measurements at several time instances, we seek to compute a reconstruction that uses all time dependent information. These problems arise for instance in X-ray computed tomography of a moving object.
