Mohammad Sadegh Salehi

PhD student in Applied Mathematics (SAMBa CDT)

Department of Mathematical Sciences University of Bath


I am a PhD student at the University of Bath and a part of the SAMBa CDT, supervised by Dr. Matthias Ehrhardt and Dr. Subhadip Mukherjee. I am also a member of the Numerical Analysis group and the Bath Imaging Group. My interests span Optimization, Machine Learning, Imaging Inverse Problems, and Data Science. My research revolves around algorithms for learning hyperparameters, particularly when the task is modeled using variational regularization approach. This approach is standard in fields like image reconstruction, image processing, machine vision, and data science.
