Representation of ECMI in AIP2017

In the 9th Applied Inverse Problems Conference (AIP 2017), Hangzhou, China, two presentations were given by Adérito Araújo (vice president) and Leonidas Mindrinos (council member). Both of them were presented in the mini-symposium: ”Inverse problems in quantitative optical and electrical tomography” organized by L. Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna) and K. Knudsen (Technical […]

Students Project: Modeling X-ray tomography using low power lamps

In the occasion of celebrating 100 years of Radon transform, we were asked to model X-ray tomography experiments in a seminar room. The examples took place in the Computational Science Center (CSC) at the University of Vienna, Austria, under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer. The tomographic system was replaced by an overhead projector, modeling the […]

Funding and travel for PhD students?

Last May I visited the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM), a research institute located on the campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Limerick, Ireland and this international trip was my second visit to the CRM to work with my PhD co-supervisor Prof Tim Myers. […]

Success story: JRU Repsol-ITMATI

Founded jointly with the enterprise Respol, the main goal of the Joint Research Unit Repsol-ITMATI (JRU Repsol-ITMATI) is the research on mathematical and numerical methods for solving problems found in the Repsol daily activity: devices and processes simulation and optimization. The JRU Repsol-ITMATI carries out innovative research lines in the border of the energetic sector […]


In the following lines, I will try to explain my experience while doing a Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) with Professor Helen Byrne at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, where you can feel maths everywhere around. As a headline, I can already state that it has been an incredible ‘adventure’ in many different senses […]

Battery modelling in Barcelona

  Barcelona: the place to do maths in shorts When I visit Barcelona I stand out for two reasons. Firstly, as a Canadian, I have a non-European accent and secondly, I’m the only person around me wearing shorts in the 16 C Spanish winter. The shorts are also largely due to the fact of my […]

Different perspectives on study groups …

From a secondary school teacher To be invited to attend the European Study Group with Industry in UL this year as a teacher of applied maths at second level was a great privilege.  At a time when knowledge alone is following the same path as horse power, adaptive intelligence, the ability to know what to […]
