Welcome to my homepage. My name is pronounced as Way-Hung Gwo. I was born in Anhui Province, P.R. China. I studied in Beijing for six years, in four of which I obtained the B.S. degree in Computational Mathematics from the Central University for Nationalities, and the next two years in Beijing Normal University for a Master’s program in Biomathematics. In 2007, I received the Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from Department of Mathematics, the Master of Statistics, from Department of Statistics , both at University of Florida, and then joined Mathematics Department of the University of Alabama as a tenure track Assistant Professor and stayed for two years. Starting July 2009, I am with Department of Mathematics at Case Western Reserve University.
My research interests include image processing, reconstruction and analysis and their applications on medicine, biological science, biomedical engineering, hyperspectral imaging etc.; theoretical and applied compressive sensing; and computational neuroscience. All tasks can be seen as mathematical inverse problems. Sequentially, a large part of my work has been dedicated to developing rigorous mathematical/statistical models of inverse problems and solving these models efficiently, using tools based on partial differential equations (PDE), calculus of variations, statistics and optimization. Specific topics include the following:
