  • Biography

    Ulugbek's PhD research developed statistical estimation techniques for solving inverse problems in biomicroscopy. His interests include signal acquisition and processing, signal representations and resolution of inverse problems. Prior to joining to MERL, 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.

    • MM1077: Large-scale Computational Radar Imaging

      The Computational Sensing team at MERL is seeking a motivated and qualified individual to conduct research on large-scale computational radar imaging under wave-based forward models. The ideal candidate should be a Ph.D. student and have a solid background and publication record in imaging inverse problems, large-scale optimization, and/or radar imaging. Experience with experimentally measured data is desirable. Publication of the results produced during the internship is expected. The duration of the internship is anticipated to be 3-6 months. Start date is flexible.
