The AIP conference is the main scientific event in the field of inverse problems. It is held every two years, apart from a break during the Covid19 pandemic. Actually I have organized one myself, in 2015 in Helsinki. This year the conference was held in Göttingen, Germany, a classic scientific hub before the second world
The International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) was held in Tokyo in late August 2023. I participated it together with many students and colleagues from University of Helsinki. This congress happens every 4 years, and it is the main scientific conference in my field of research. It was nice for me to go
I had the honor of opening the legendary IWOTA conference at University of Helsinki on July 31, 2023. You can read my opening address below, including a JOKE! I gave my own talk as well in the minisymposium on inverse problems, organized by Lauri Oksanen and Tony Liimatainen. Here are my slides (PDF 16MB) in
I just published a new video in my lecture series on X-ray tomography (link). There I show how to use Matlab to simulate basic tomographic things such as sinograms and filtered back-projection algorithms. I also give an introductory discussion of measurement noise and how to supress it with a low-pass filter. This is how it
I was lucky to be invited again to the legendary Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO). This time the topic of the five-day workshop was tomography, or mathematical slice imaging. How delightful it was to meet collaborators and share ideas after the pandemic years of online meetings!
I gave a talk in the “Math Encounters” series at the Museum of Mathematics in New York City in February 2023. My topic was X-ray tomography. Now the video recording of the presentation is available! Enjoy!
I co-organized a workshop in March 2023 at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge: https://www.newton.ac.uk/event/rntw02/ It was so nice to see many colleagues after a long break! Instead of a regular scientific talk, I gave a presentation by title “Science Showmanship”. It contained some scientific stand-up comedy and stories about being a mathematical YouTuber. In
The Finnish Nuclear Society elected me to represent University of Helsinki in the Board of 2023. I am really excited about this position at the time of the world’s first geological disposal (in Finland!) of spent fuel and the rise of small modular reactors (SMRs). Nuclear energy plays a significant role in the transition away
