## Michael Bianco
## About meI am a postdoctoral scholar in the UCSD Noiselab with Dr. Peter Gerstoft, where I am developing machine learning-based approaches to geoscience problems. I obtained my B.S. degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University in 2007 and my Ph.D. from the UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2018. My dissertation work focused on the development of machine learning and sparse modeling-based methods for geophysical inverse problems. Prior to UCSD, I was an engineer at Rocketyne, where I designed and analyzed rocket engine hardware for commerical and manned spaceflight. ## Events2018/10/21 - Mike is attending the UMN IMA Workshop: Recent advances in machine learning and computational methods for geoscience ## ResearchMy research concerns the development of physics-based machine learning and signal processing theory for geophysical inference problems, e.g. imaging the structures of the Earth and oceans using seismic and acoustic data. My research topics include: Sparse modeling, compressive sensing Seismic and acoustic tomography Machine Learning
