Ulugbek S. Kamilov is a Research Scientist in the Computational Sensing team at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), Cambridge, MA, USA. Dr. Kamilov obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Communication Systems, and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in 2008, 2011, and 2015, respectively. In 2007, he was an Exchange Student at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Pittsburgh, PA, USA, in 2010, a Visiting Student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, USA, and in 2013, a Visiting Student Researcher at Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA.
Dr. Kamilov's research focus is computational imaging with an emphasis on the development and analysis of large-scale computational techniques for biomedical and industrial applications. His research interests cover imaging through scattering media, multimodal imaging, distributed radar sensing, and through-the-wall imaging. He has co-authored 17 journal and 30 conference publications in these areas. His Ph.D. thesis work on Learning Tomography (LT) was selected as a finalist for EPFL Doctorate Awards 2016 and was featured in the "News and Views" section of the Nature magazine. Since 2016, Dr. Kamilov is a member IEEE Special Interest Group on Computational Imaging.
My objective is to develop new sensing systems that can image and analyze previously inaccessible information by using large-scale computational imaging. Specifically, I leverage the full power of numerical optimization, machine learning, and statistical inference to get the highest-quality images in the shortest amout of time. The goal is to better understand all three important areas for computational imaging: (a) study of the physical measurement processes; (b) design of an inference algorithm that can turn the measurements into the desired image; (c) theoretical analysis of the algorithms.
I am currently interested in 3D imaging in scattering media, which I consider essential for the next generation biomedical and industrial sensing systems.
