Dr. David Dobson is an applied mathematician with over twenty years of research experience in wave propagation, inverse problems, and scientific computation. His research has focused on both the practical and the theoretical aspects of recovering information about inhomogeneous media from observations of wave propagation data. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, among other agencies. Dr. Dobson received his Ph.D. in 1990 from Rice University. He received the Felix Klein Prize, awarded by the European Mathematical Society, in 2000, and was an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow 1997-1999. He has held research and academic positions at the University of Minnesota and Texas A&M University, and is currently a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Utah.
