Mathematics scholar wins MediaV Young Researcher Award 2016

數學學者獲頒MediaV青年科學家獎

Dr Liu Hongyu, Associate Professor of the Department of Mathematics of HKBU, received the MediaV Young Researcher Award 2016 during The 8th International Conference on Inverse Problems and Related Topics held in Seoul, South Korea. The award is presented to young scholars who have made important contributions to the field of inverse problems. Every two years, at most two award recipients are selected. Dr Liu and a scholar from Germany were selected this year. The selection committee of the MediaV Young Researcher Award 2016 comprised nine members from the US, the UK, mainland China, Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Dr Liu was honoured to receive the prize in recognition of his research related to inverse problems which can be widely applied in areas such as optics, radar, medical imaging and signal processing. He said “The mathematical research on inverse problems is relatively new and challenging. Our researchers at HKBU studied the various aspects of inverse problems, particularly associated with partial differential equations, including mathematical modeling, theoretical identifiability and stability, invisibility cloaking and numerical reconstruction methods, as well as practical applications in medical imaging, and information and computing technology.”

數學系副教授劉宏宇博士在南韓首爾第八屆國際反問題及相關議題研討會獲頒發「2016年MediaV青年科學家獎」。獎項是表揚青年科學家在反問題範疇上的重大貢獻,每兩年最多兩位科學家得獎。今年,浸大劉宏宇博士與一位來自德國的科學家獲選。由九位成員組成的評審委員來自美國、英國、內地、韓國、香港及台灣。

劉博士認為獎項肯定他在浸大的研究,對此感到榮幸。研究可應用到光學、雷達影像、醫療成像及訊號處理等多項領域。他說:「數學的反問題研究是一門相對較新的學科,亦具有挑戰性。我的研究團隊在反問題的不同層面深入研究,尤其是針對偏微分方程式的相關研究,包括數學建模及理論分析、數值反演演算法、隱形塗層裝置等,團隊亦探討在醫療成像、資訊和計算科學等領域的應用。」
