Coralia Cartis, School of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
Coralia CARTIS has been a tenured assistant professor at Edinburgh University in Scotland, United Kingdom since 2007. Previously, she held postdoctoral appointments within the numerical analysis groups at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Oxford University. She pursued her PhD research in numerical optimization under the supervision of Prof Mike Powell at Cambridge University (2005).
Coralia's research addresses the development, convergence and complexity analyses and implementation of algorithms for linear and nonlinear nonconvex smooth optimization problems, suitable for large-scale problems. She is also interested in the interconnections between dynamical systems and continuous optimization; and optimization aspects of compressed sensing and sparse approximation.
She is invited by Miguel F. Anjos and Dominique Orban. Don't miss her seminar on Monday, October 31, 2011.
