**Background**

**Research**

Although I am a pure mathematician, in the past 15 years I have tried to find out how some of what I have learned applies to other disciplines. One of the topics I have worked on is Wavelets (invented in 1987 by Ingrid Daubechies of Princeton), which now has a vast range of applications such as signal and image processing, data compression, seismology, speech recognition, stock market analysis and much more. I have taught a wavelet course for our Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate students. Another area that I have worked on is Mathematics of Medical Imaging, which uses advanced topics from mathematics, and in particular some of the theoretical parts Functional Analysis and Operator Theory. It is used in CT scan machines, PET, MRI, and sonography, to name a few.
