Lauri Oksanen is Reader at the University College London (UCL), and holds Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Fellowship. He is a member of the UCL Centre for Inverse Problems. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Helsinki in 2012, and worked as an acting assistant professor at the University of Washington before joining UCL in 2013.
He received the JiongWei Young Researcher Award for Inverse Problems in 2018. His research focuses on inverse problems for hyperbolic partial differential equations, covering both theoretical and computational aspects of these problems.
Recently he has considered coefficient recovery problems for linear and non-linear wave equations in geometric context, and the associated integral geometry problems involving integrals over light rays, as well as finite element methods for unique continuation problems.
