Lab Director (or Principal Investigator)

Isao Yamada received the B.E. degree in computer science from the University of Tsukuba in 1985 and the M.E. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, in 1987 and 1990, respectively. He is a full-professor with the Department of Communications and Computer Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology. His current research interests are in mathematical signal processing, nonlinear inverse problems, and optimization theory. Currently he is a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Theory and Methods Technical Committee as well as an editorial board member of several journals, which include the IEICE Transactions on Fundamentals (Editor-in-Chief), Numerical Functional Analysis and Optimization, and Multidimensional Systems and Signal Processing. He received the IEICE Achievement Award in 2009, the ICF Research Award in 2004, the Docomo Mobile Science Award in 2005 and the Fujino Prize in 2008.

Lab Introduction

The objective of our laboratory is to establish inherently innovative methodologies for the central problems in signal processing that arise in a variety of applications. Such applications can be found, e.g., in image processing, acoustics, communications, medical, and geophysical systems. Our goal is not only to demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed methodologies but also to understand their in-depth mathematical foundations for further advancement. Our current research interests include (i) iterative and algebraic algorithms for nonlinear inverse problems, (ii) algorithms for online learning problems, and (iii) algebraic phase unwrapping for remote sensing and medical imaging.
Graduate students of our laboratory are mainly from Computer Science and Mathematics departments.
