Haomin Zhou is a professor in the School of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his BS in pure mathematics from Peking University, China (1991), his MS in scientific computing from Peking University (1994), and M.Phil in applied mathematics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (1996). He moved to the US in 1996, and obtained his PhD in applied mathematics from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2000. He spent three years at the California Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral scholar and von Karman instructor before he joined the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2003.
His research interests are in numerical analysis and scientific computing, specifically in digital image and video processing including compression, restorations, registration, super-resolutions, inpainting and error concealments, wavelets and nonlinear signal processing, diffusion on graphs, multi-scale PDE computations, and stochastic differential equations. He is a recipient of the NSF Faculty Early Career Award in applied and computational mathematics in 2007. His PhD thesis, entitled "Wavelet and PDE Techniques in Image Processing," won the Honorable Mention for the Householder Prize for the best PhD thesis in numerical analysis in 2000 to 2002.
In addition to his position at the Georgia Institute of Technology, he is a managing editor for the journal Inverse Problems and Imaging.
