Inverse Problems Group in Science Week 2012

October 2nd 2012


The Academy of Finland organizes the Science Week in Tampere, Finland, October 4th-11th, 2012. During the Science Week, the Summer University of Tampere organises the Science Orienteering event for secondary school and high school students. Kuopio Inverse Problems group participates in both of the events. Aku Seppänen arranges together with Prof. Samuli Siltanen (University of Helsinki) a demonstration of electrical tomography in science orienteering. On Tuesday Oct. 9th, Aku Seppänen gives a public lecture on theory and applications of tomography. The given lecture can be seen on video (in finnish).

Timo Lähivaara selected as Academy Post Doctoral researcher

May 30th 2012

Timo Lähivaara, PhD, was selected as Academy Post Doctoral researcher (01.09.2012 - 31.08.2015) by the Academy of Finland’s Research Council for Natural Sciences and Engineering. The title of his research project is "New approaches for estimating groundwater resources". The aim of the project is to develop innovative methods, which can be applied to estimating groundwater levels. New techniques, such as discontinuous Galerkin method, achieve better numerical accuracy and therefore the solution reliability is expected to be significantly improved. The developed numerical methods are also suitable for a variety of other research areas, e.g. ultrasound imaging, noise cancellation, and electromagnetics.
