My research interests have been primarily in the areas of integral
and differential equations and their applications to problems in
physical sciences and engineering. More specifically, I work in the
areas of scattering theory, inverse scattering theory, and wave
The problem of interest is the recovery of the property
of the inhomogeneous medium from the far field wave propagation data.
Such a problem appears in may applied fields, such as quantum
mechanics, geophysical exploration, medical imaging and electromagnetic
soundings, where the direct measurement of the property under
consideration is not achievable. Therefore an indirect (inverse) method
is used to deduce information about the problem.
Because of its wide reaching
applications, exact and approximate mathematical methods to study such
inverse problems and their numerical implementations have been of
special interest to me. A problem of great interest has been the
development of a practical non iterative inversion method for the three
dimensional acoustic medium.This problem has been an ongoing research
endeavor for me and some of my Ph.D. students.
My recent interests have also
included application of inverse scattering theory and wavelets to
science and engineering problems and also to investigate the
possibility of applications of these theories in human perception such
as hearing and / or image recognition.
The other very important area which I
have always found to be very challenging and rewarding is developing
effective and innovative methods to teach and present new and / or
standard educational materials to students in such a way as to motivate
and excite their imaginations, induce creative thinking and help them
reach their potentials.
In order to further facilitate the
realization of such goals, more effective use of computers, other
technical tools, and innovative educational methods in presenting
course materials are also planned to be explored and implemented.
