Job description:
Topological data analysis (TDA) is an emerging concept of data analysis for characterizing shape of data. In particular, it provides a tool called the persistent homology that extracts multiscale topological features embedded in data. Our team studies theory and algorithm on persistent homology based on representation theory, probability theory, machine learnings, and inverse problems. We also apply TDA into scientific and engineering problems such as materials science, life and medical science, meteorology, and economics. The successful candidate is expected to develop theories and algorithms on TDA and their applications along these directions.
