Mathematical Data Science


Welcome to the mathematical data science group. As we evolved from START-project Y760, we of course love dictionary learning but also like sparse approximation, inpainting or denoising. In general we will be happy with anything, where we can implement something in matlab to look at pretty pictures and at the same time attack it with a lot of linear algebra and a bit of probability theory, optimisation and harmonic analysis.

No open jobs for the moment, unless you are feeling daring or desperate enough to start a PhD with only 2 years guaranteed funding. Nothing better to test your courage or desperation than browsing the research page and reading some of our papers!

If you have most of the skills in linear algebra, some of the skills in probability theory or harmonic analysis and all the interest in dictionary learning but don't have a master's project yet, come for a chat (msc)!

Finally, if your head is still spinning from the introductory lectures but you think that messing around with images could be fun, check out our bachelor projects (bsc)!


Congratulations to Marie and Andi, their paper on dictionary learning for adaptive mri is listed as editor's choice! For those interested in the conditioning of submatrices, there is a new talk from the CodEX Seminar in Colorado available on youtube.

Hello world! We have been upgraded to be our own research group. Thanks to the Applied Math Group for hosting us until now!
