Milana Gatarić

I recently started a new position as a postdoctoral fellow in the European Bioinformatics Institute, EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK. Prior to this, during 2016--2020, I was a research associate in the Centre for Mathematical Imaging in Healthcare based at the Statistical Laboratory, University of Cambridge, and in 2015--2016, I was an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellow at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge.

In 2016 I completed my PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, where I was co-supervised by Ben Adcock and Anders Hansen. I also have a BSc and a MSc in Applied Mathematics, both from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia.

My research interests span across statistical and imaging sciences motivated by bio-medical applications. Specific topics include high-dimensional clustering and principal component analysis; sparse and low-rank models; image reconstruction; medical and optical imaging; super-resolution; inverse problems; sampling theory; Fourier analysis; multiscale approximations.
