Executive Team

Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb is a Reader in Applied and Computational Analysis at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge since 2015. There, she is head of the Cambridge Image Analysis group, Director of the Cantab Capital Institute for Mathematics of Information, Co-Director of the EPSRC Centre for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Multimodal Clinical Imaging, and since 2011 a fellow of Jesus College Cambridge.

Her current research interests focus on variational methods and partial differential equations for image analysis, image processing and inverse imaging problems.

Her research has been acknowledged by scientific prizes, among them the LMS Whitehead Prize 2016, and by invitations to give plenary lectures at several renowned applied mathematics conference, among them the SIAM conference on Imaging Science in 2014, the SIAM conference on Partial Differential Equations in 2015, the IMA Conference on Challenges of Big Data in 2016 and the SIAM annual meeting in 2017. Carola graduated from the Institute for Mathematics, University of Salzburg (Austria) in 2004. From 2004 to 2005 she held a teaching position in Salzburg.

She received her PhD degree from the University of Cambridge in 2009. After one year of postdoctoral activity at the University of Göttingen (Germany), she became a Lecturer in at DAMTP in 2010, promoted to Reader in 2015.
