Luca Calatroni is a Hadamard research fellow working at the Centre de Mathématiques Appliquées (CMAP) of the École Polytechnique, France. He completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics within the Cambridge Image Analysis group at the University of Cambridge (UK) in 2015 and joined the CMAP in 2016 after a one-year post-doc Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship at the University of Genova, Italy. His research interests lie in the fields of mathematical image processing, inverse problems and non-smooth optimisation continuous optimisation.

Marie d'Autume is a PhD student at CMLA, École Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France. Her research interests lie in image processing, texturing of 3D reconstructions and satellite images.

Rob Hocking is a postdoctoral researcher in the scientific computing lab at the University of British Columbia. He received his PhD in math at the University of Cambridge, focusing on image inpainting as it applies to 3D conversion. His interests include image processing, computer graphics and visualization, multigrid, and mathematical art.

Stella Panayotova has an MA in Classics from the University of Sofia (1990) and a DPhil in medieval history from the University of Oxford (1998). She has been Keeper of Manuscripts and Printed Books at the Fitzwilliam Museum since 2000, and Director of the Cambridge Illuminations research project (since Oct. 2004) and of the MINIARE research project (since Oct. 2011).

Simone Parisotto is a PhD Student at the Cambridge Centre for Analysis (CCA) of the University of Cambridge (UK), where he is also a member of the Cambridge Image Analysis group, led by Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb. His research interests include inverse, variational and optimization problems in image analysis, with outlook to Cultural Heritage conservation challenges.

Paola Ricciardi is a Research Scientist at the Fitzwilliam Museum (Cambridge, UK) where she is responsible for the scientific aspects of the MINIARE research project ( She holds a PhD in Cultural Heritage Science from the University of Florence (2008). Her main research interests include the technical analysis of cultural heritage objects; the study of artists’ materials and techniques; and the transfer of knowledge between artists and craftsmen working in different media.

Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb is Professor of Applied Mathematics, University of Cambridge, UK, where she heads the Cambridge Image Analysis Group at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. Her research interests are in mathematical imaging, inverse problems, partial differential equations and variational models.
