# Rima Alaifari

I am currently an ETH Postdoctoral Fellow in the Seminar for Applied Mathematics at ETH Zürich. Starting in October 2016, I will be an Assistant Professor for Applied Mathematics at ETH. I mainly work in the fields of applied analysis and inverse problems. My research interests include stability analysis and regularization of inverse problems, tomographic reconstruction, applied harmonic analysis and signal processing. My current focus is on phase retrieval.
