Short biography

Zafer Dogan got his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Ecole Polytechique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in April 2015. His research areas include signal and image processing (in particular, sparse signal representations, sampling and approximation, multi-resolution analysis and finite rate of innovation representations in functional neuroimaging) and inverse problems in nonlinear tomography (in particular, meshfree methods in inverse source and scattering problems for nonlinear ultrasound- and photoacoustic-tomography). Before his Ph.D., he got his B.Sc. degree from Middle East Technical University (METU) and M.Sc. degree from EPFL both in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in 2009 and in 2011, respectively. Dr. Dogan continues his career as a postdoctoral researcher in Campus Biotech at MIPLAB jointly affiliated to EPFL and University of Geneva.
