We are happy to announce that Fabian Hinterer, PhD student in Sub-project Tomography with Astronomy, defended successfully his PhD thesis with the title “Inverse Problems in Imaging Applications Across the Scales” on 3rd of November, 2023. A link to his thesis can be found here.
Fabian was a PhD student under the supervision of Ronny Ramlau, principal investigator of Sub-project Tomography in Astronomy, at the Industrial Mathematics Institute at the Johannes Kepler University Linz.
Members of the SFB took part in Fabian’s ceremony and presented him with a joint gift afterwards!
We are happy to announce that Fabian Parzer, PhD student in Sub-project Tomography with Uncertainties, defended successfully his PhD thesis with the title “Low-Rank and Scale-Space Methods for Imaging with Uncertainty Quantification” on 25th of October, 2023.
Fabian was a PhD student under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer, principal investigator of Sub-project Tomography with Uncertainties, at the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna.
Colleagues from the SFB project and the Computational Science Center gathered in the evening to celebrate with Fabian his successful defense.
From 12th to 15th of September this year’s SFB Member Meeting took place in Wildalpen in Styria, Austria. Aside from presenting interesting topics on and related to the ongoing research, the SFB members gathered and used the opportunity to exchange with their collaborators from other projects.
The evening activities, a very informative quiz organized by Fabian Hinterer and a campfire, rounded off wonderfully this event which was perfectly organized by our member speaker Ekaterina Sherina. We would like to thank the members for their participation at this year’s event!
In the first week of September the 11th Applied Inverse Problems Conference took place in Göttingen, Germany. Eight of our SFB project coordinators and members participated at this conference. All participants used the opportunity to present their recent and ongoing research in various minisymposia. In addition, four minisymposia at this conference were organized by Peter Elbau, Ekaterina Sherina, Michael Quellmalz and Leopold Veselka.
Two SFB members, Fabian Hinterer and Leopold Veselka, were invited to the ICIAM23 Conference in Tokyo, Japan, where they had the chance to present their newest results in the minisymposium under the name “Recent Developments in Applied Inverse Problems”. Both speakers would like to express their gratitude to the organizers Hiroshi Fujiwara and Kamran Sadiq for the invitation and the warm welcome in Tokyo.
The 14th Internal SFB Meeting took place, for the first time, at Hotel Bergkristall in Wildalpen between 3-5 July, featuring talks, discussions and even an excursion.
The excursion took the Hopfgartenrunde and had a strong turnout amongst participants. The tour also featured a brief refreshment stop, where participants could enjoy a beverage under the gaze of the surrounding mountains.
Participants were feasted to 16 talks in total, from both SFB members and invited non-members, on various topics from our various sub-projects.
Overall, the meeting was a great success. The SFB members will return once more for the 6th Member Meeting in September. The next Internal SFB Meeting, however, will feature a return to Obergurgl.
SFB member Ekaterina Sherina was invited to give a talk at the International Zoom Inverse Problems seminar at the University of California, Irvine, where she gave an overview of quantitative optical coherence elastograpy and presented recent project results.

The 13th Internal SFB Meeting took place between 12-15 February in Villa Sonnwend, Roßleiten, Austria. It was an action-packed event featuring notable talks from members, as well as memorable debuts from external and international participants from realms as far flung as Finland.
In addition to the talks, there was a free afternoon on Tuesday 14 February which coincided with Valentine’s Day.
The SFB team welcomes new team member Kemal Raik as its latest addition. He will function as the scientific project coordinator and will be responsible for organisational as well as administrative elements of the project. Kemal Raik, now at the University of Vienna’s Computational Science Centre, had previously been employed at the Industrial Mathematics Institute of the Johannes Kepler University Linz and brings with him his expertise on inverse problems and regularisation theory. We look forward to fruitful collaborations and working together with him.
From 10th to 21st of October, the first two workshop-weeks of the RICAM Special Semester “Tomography across the Scales” took place at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics in Linz. There, Fabian Hinterer, Simon Hubmer, Michael Quellmalz, Ekaterina Sherina and Leopold Veselka, all members of the mathematical subprojects within the SFB project, were invited to present their latest scientific advances to an audience of experts in the various fields of Inverse Problems. Furthermore, the members got the chance to exchange ideas with other researchers and to benefit from external input. We express our gratitude to the organizers for the invitation and the hospitality during these perfectly organized workshops!
