Profile: | Christine De Mol holds a Ph.D. in Physics (1979) and a habilitation degree in Mathematical Physics (1992) from ULB. Since 1975, she has held several research positions with the Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS) that she left in 1998 as a Honorary Research Director to become a full-time Professor at ULB. She has held several visiting positions (Universities of London, Rome, Montpellier, Paris-Sud, Genoa). Her research interests in applied mathematics include inverse problems, sparsity-enforcing regularization theory, wavelets and applications, learning theory, analysis and forecasting of time series, portfolio theory. |
